Executive Summary

Many next generation applications (such as video flows) are likely to have associated minimum data rate requirements to ensure satisfactory quality as perceived by end-users. While there have been prior approaches on supporting Quality-of-Service (QoS) in mesh networks, they have largely ignored the issues that arise due to self-interference, the interference between different link layer transmissions of a single flow along a multi-hop path. In this paper, the authors develop a framework to address the problem of maximizing the aggregate utility of traffic flows in wireless mesh networks, with constraints imposed both due to self-interference and minimum rate requirements.
