Wireless networks are evolving rapidly, enabling services that until recently were almost exclusively bound to wired environments. With improvements to link quality, bandwidth and network management (Wireless Mesh Networks), the rapid growth and popularity of wireless networks is only going to continue.
With these improvements, opportunities to provide services such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) are becoming feasible. The LinkSys WRT54GL wireless broadband router is a cheap, yet powerful device that is able to run customised software on top of routing data wirelessly.
Wireless Mesh Networks, VoIP software and the WRT54GL will be combined in this thesis to allow for a simple yet robust telephone network to exist in parallel with traditional data networking.
It is envisioned that the telephone network will be able to create and maintain a telephone network automatically. To enable this, additions to freely available VoIP software will be made and a decentralised telephone network will exist entirely on wireless routers.
A critical analysis will be carried out on all aspects of this thesis and the feasibility and practicality of such a system will be investigated and presented
