Executive Summary

Wireless mesh networks are a promising area for the deployment of new wireless communication and networking technologies. In this paper, the authors address the problem of enabling effective peer-to-peer resource sharing in this type of networks. Starting from the well-known Chord protocol for resource sharing in wired networks, they propose a specialization that accounts for peculiar features of wireless mesh networks: namely, the availability of a wireless infrastructure, and the 1-hop broadcast nature of wireless communication, which bring to the notions of location-awareness and MAC layer cross-layering.
