The much research progress has been made in network capacity analysis of ad-hoc networks, WMNs have not been fully explored due to the difference between WMNs and ad-hoc networks. The result about network capacity and optimum node density of ad-hoc networks may not directly be applied to the WMNs because both stationary and mobile ad-hoc nodes exist in WMNs. In last decade much research has been carried out to study the capacity of ad-hoc networks which can be adopted to investigate the capacity of WMNs. In this paper, the authors used two techniques, multi-channels per radio and multi-radios per node. These techniques can be used in WMNs to increase its capacity.
