A mesh network consists of several nodes that are all connected to each other.
When the mesh network topology is used, some branch locations have dedicated links to other branch locations. For these branches, the RTP (Real-Time Transport Protocol) traffic is routed via a direct link between the two branch locations instead of routing through a backbone WAN.

Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony supports CAC for networks that use any combination of star, tree, and mesh network topologies.
