An Interference-Aware Admission Control Design for Wireless Mesh Networks
Source: Hindawi Publishing
In this paper, the authors present IAC, an interference aware admission control algorithm for use in wireless mesh networks. The core concept of IAC is to use a low overhead dual threshold based approach to share the bandwidth information with its neighbors in the interfering range. As a result, IAC guarantees that the shared wireless bandwidth is not over-utilized and the quality of all existing flows are preserved. Moreover, IAC takes into account the intra-flow interference effect to estimate the bandwidth consumption of the flow in a multi-hop path.
