In this paper, we propose a banyan-tree topology for the wireless coverage along the road or railway, which is characterized as a zonal network. Theoretical analysis and numerical studies show that the proposed ban-yan-tree topology is appropriate for the zonal network with the Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) technology, which is feasible to deploy and has the enhanced robust, improved bandwidth with this topology.
