In this paper, the authors have considered a Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) with multiple Internet GateWays (IGW) and wired network support for maximizing the delivery in the WMN access network. They have considered the WMN in IEEE 802.11s framework that nodes can transit from one IGW region to the other seamlessly based on the Quality of Service (QOS) requirements. Then, they set up the system and method for maximizing delivery in the last mile through wired gateways. Then subsequently they address the problem of IGW placement in the WMN.
