Back to the metro wi-fi party again with Cisco looking to announce a mesh product.

Now, I'm not really a big fan of meshing to start with but at least Cisco is taking a two radio approach to the problem - one radio for client acquisition and one for backhaul. This is, in my mind at least, a significantly better solution then the single radio solution proposed by the likes of Tropos. The contention issue is simply something that can't be ignored - but those Tropos guys can sell around just about anything......
