Executive Summary

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are emerging as a promising technology for backhauling data traffic from wireless access networks to the wired Internet that expected to support various types of applications with different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. While wireless mesh networking has attracted great industrial and academic interest, many research challenges remain in all protocol layers. Moreover, traditional layered approaches, initially designed for wired networks, have been proven insufficient for WMNs due to the wireless channel variability, co-channel interference and new data traffic peculiarities.
