Topology Control for Service-Oriented Wireless Mesh Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Topology control is one of the most critical design issues in multihop wireless networks. Topology control has been investigated extensively in the literature. Nevertheless, it is noted that most existing studies do not consider the requirements on upper layer applications or services. In this paper the authors address the topology control issues on service-oriented wireless mesh networks. In particular, they provide a comprehensive survey of existing works on topology control from a service-oriented perspective. The authors then propose a general framework for topology control in service-oriented WMNs. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the framework, the authors conduct a case study in which the main objective is to maximize the overall throughput in a network with random unicast traffic.
