Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have been proposed as a key technology for next generation wireless networking to provide last-mile broadband access. Here the authors have given their observation and study for end to-end bandwidth estimation in WMNs. End-to-end Bandwidth Estimation is an important metric for network management and monitoring. It can also improve the effectiveness of congestion control mechanism, audio/video stream adoration and dynamic overlay. In recent years, many techniques have been developed for bandwidth estimation in the wired as well as the last-hop wireless networks, but they under-perform in WMNs.
