Ad hoc and mesh networks are currently under heavy research around the world. It is also becoming an area of great interest in the future network architecture such as 4G. It is expected that these networks will be dominantly present both in the proximity and wide area networks. In this paper we present performance perspectives of wireless mesh network topology in compared with point-to-multipoint (PMP) in terms of coverage and spectrum efficiency. Simulation results shows that thought the coverage efficiency of mesh networking is overwhelming, advanced methods should be used to improve its spectrum efficiency. The key results of the performance evaluation based on the simulations are presented.
