This paper focuses on the implementation and the verification of an interference aware routing scheme based on channel-load for multi-radio multi-channel wireless mesh network. Channel-load which is defined in IEEE 802.11k is channel consumption per time period of radio channel. Channel-load metric is able to recognize interference better than existing metrics in IEEE 802.11 networks. As a result, this routing metric achieves higher performance than other metrics in the environment with interference that has insufficient radio channel resources like wireless mesh network.
