Wireless Mesh Networks (MMNs) are an emerging technology right now. During their lifetime, multi-hop Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) experience frequent link failures caused by channel interference, dynamic obstacles and/or applications bandwidth demands. These failures cause severe performance degradation in WMNs or require expensive, manual network management for their real-time recovery. This project creates a Dynamic network Reconfiguration System (DRS) that enables a multi-radio WMN to autonomously recover from local link failures to preserve network performance. By using channel and radio diversities in WMNs, DRS generate necessary changes in local radio and channel assignments in order to recover from failures.
