Executive Summary

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are envisaged to extend internet access and other networking services in personal, local, campus, and metropolitan areas. Mesh Routers (MR) form the connectivity backbone while performing the dual tasks of packet forwarding as well as providing network access to the mesh clients. However, the performance of such networks is limited by traffic congestion, as only limited bandwidth is available for supporting the large number of nodes in close proximity. This problem can be alleviated by the cognitive radio paradigm that aims at devising spectrum sensing and management techniques, thereby allowing radios to intelligently locate and use frequencies other than those in the 2.4GHz ISM band.
