MobiCom 2010 Poster: Centralized Flow Coordination for Proportional Fairness in Enterprise Wireless Mesh Networks
IEEE 802.11-based Enterprise WMNs (Wireless Mesh Networks) is one of possible practical extensions of WMNs. However, the wide adoption of Enterprise WMNs is limited by the flow unfairness problem due to the complicated interference relationship between adjacent nodes. To overcome this limitation, the authors propose FlowNet that centrally coordinates flows to implement a centralized source rate control algorithm in the Enterprise WMNs. By the cooperative operation between flow signaling and flow balancing methods, FlowNet provides proportional fairness among multiple flows in the Enterprise WMNs.
