Alternative Network Deployments : Taxonomy, characterization, technologies and architectures
This document presents a taxonomy of a set of “Alternative Network
Deployments” emerged in the last decade with the aim of bringing
Internet connectivity to people. They employ architectures and
topologies different from those of mainstream networks, and rely on
alternative business models.
The document also surveys the technologies deployed in these
networks, and their differing architectural characteristics,
including a set of definitions and shared properties.
The classification considers models such as Community Networks,
Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), networks owned by
individuals but leased out to network operators who use them as a
low-cost medium to reach the underserved population, and networks
that provide connectivity by sharing wireless resources of the users.
