Design of Wireless Mesh Networks: Expansion and Reliability Studies

Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors' goal is to propose a unified/generalized model for the Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) design problem taking into account all the parameters that have a significant impact on WMNs. In the WMNs design literature, different studies take into account traffic demand, interference, multi-channel, transmission power, potential locations of wireless routers/gateways and node's characteristics (number of radios/node and number of channels/radio). In this paper, they introduce two new parameters: expansion and reliability. They will focus on refining the WMN design taking into account traffic expansion, geographic expansion and reliability without increasing the investment cost of the design.
