Executive Summary

Wireless mesh networks are part of ad-hoc networks that have potential to deliver Internet broadband access, Wireless Local Area Network coverage and network connectivity for stationary or mobile host at low cost. The technique involves a network of wireless routers relaying each other's packets in a multi-hop fashion. In this paper, the authors evaluate the performance of the Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) protocols for hybrid WMNs, which are a special type of wireless mesh network that are comprised of both static infrastructure nodes as well as mobile client devices, depending on certain performance metrics like packet delivery ratio, routing overhead, latency, dropped packets etc.
