Abstract: The paper describes the performance enhancement obtained by adding an electronically controlled beamswitching antenna to a laboratory set up of a wireless mesh network. The antenna permits several modes offering several beam shapes and directions. The wireless mesh network operated in a fixed 11 Mbps mode. The throughput improvement in multi-hop communication obtained in the presence of an interferer is tenfold, from 0.2 Mbps to 2 Mbps.
