Executive Summary

A wise network planning becomes the most important phase in determining the network efficiency. In this paper, the authors consider the Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) planning problem where no much work has been done. They propose a new multi-objective optimization model for planning WMNs, where the two conflicting objectives, namely network deployment cost and network channels' interferences, are simultaneously minimized while guaranteeing end-users' full coverage and robust topologies. They also propose a novel performance metric to evaluate the network interference level and a population-based optimization heuristic to solve their model, whereby many WMN planning solutions are provided to the end-planner to choose among.
