An Interference-Aware Admission Control Design for Wireless Mesh Networks
In this paper, the authors present IAC, an interference aware admission control algorithm for use in wireless mesh networks. The core concept of IAC is to use a low overhead dual threshold based approach to share the bandwidth information with its neighbors in the interfering range. As a result, IAC guarantees that the shared wireless bandwidth is not over-utilized and the quality of all existing flows are preserved. Moreover, IAC takes into account the intra-flow interference effect to estimate the bandwidth consumption of the flow in a multi-hop path.
