A Review on Routing Protocols in Wireless Mesh Networks
Wireless mesh networks have the potential to deliver Internet broadband access, wireless local area network coverage and network connectivity for stationary or mobile hosts at low costs both for network operators and customers. Routing is fundamental characteristics of wireless mesh network. The strengths and weakness of routing protocol are reflected directly in WMN's characteristics .This paper studies various types of routing protocols that are used in wireless mesh networks. This paper also provides mesh protocols functionality, characteristics and comparison analysis.
