Experimental Evaluation of Multi-Path Routing in a Wireless Mesh Network Inside a Building
Source: University of Bern
Multi-path routing can provide robustness and load balancing to communication in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). The authors present a Linux implementation of an existing multi-path routing scheme and evaluate it in the in-house WMN testbed. In addition to the implementation, they describe the testbed where they performed evaluations regarding end-to-end delay and packet loss. Furthermore, they identify the limitations of the implemented protocol in a real-world scenario with interferences due to dense node placement as well as third-party networks and discuss possible enhancements and general directions of research.
