Interference-Aware Channel Assignment for Maximizing Throughput in WMN

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is dynamically self-organizing and self-configured, with the nodes in the network automatically establishing an ad-hoc network and maintaining the mesh connectivity. The ability to use multiple-radios and multiple channels can be cashed to increase aggregate throughput of wireless mesh network. Thus the efficient use of available interfaces and channels without interference becomes the key factor. In this paper, the authors propose interference aware clustered based channel assignment schemes which minimizes the interference and increases throughput. In their proposed scheme they have given priority to minimize interference from nearby mesh nodes in interference range than maximizing channel diversity.
