Modified Autonomous Network Reconfiguration System for Wireless Mesh Networks
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) consist of mesh routers and mesh clients, where mesh routers have minimal mobility and form the backbone of WMNs. During their lifetime, multihop Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) experience frequent link failures caused by channel interference, dynamic obstacles, and/or applications' bandwidth demands. Modified Autonomous network Reconfiguration System (MARS) that enables a multi-radio WMN to autonomously recover from local link failures to preserve network performance. By using channel and radio diversities in WMNs, MARS generates necessary changes in local radio and channel assignments in order to recover from failures.
