Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) technique is considered as one of the most promising emerging wireless technologies that can significantly improve transmission capacity and reliability in wireless mesh networks. While MIMO has been widely studied for single link transmission scenarios in physical layer as well as from MAC perspective, its impact on network layer, especially its interaction with routing has not drawn enough research attention. In this paper, the authors investigate the problem of routing in MIMO-based wireless mesh networks.
