Investigation and Addressing Unfairness in Wireless Mesh Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Unfairness is one of the major problems in WMN as each node operates not only as a host but also as a router, forwarding packets on behalf of other nodes that may not be within the direct wireless transmission range of their destinations and thereby adding delay and affecting the throughputs of the node. Addressing end-to-end unfairness in wireless mesh network is necessary for the network to be scalable otherwise; the expected network scalability will not be met. The unfairness investigation shows that the end-to-end unfairness in a wireless mesh network will affect the network scalability.
