Wireless mesh network is an emerging network architecture which have been actively standardized for the last few years. Because of its flexible network architecture, wireless mesh network can provide alternative paths even when some of wireless links are broken by node failures or intended attacks. Among various types of mesh network, the authors focus on the most recent mesh standard, IEEE 802.11s and its resiliency to jamming attack. In the paper, they show jamming effects on wireless mesh network and the performance of the Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP) defined in IEEE 802.11s and their proposed distributed path selection protocol.
