Towards High-Throughput and Fair Multicast in Wireless Mesh Networks
Source: Purdue University
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have been proposed as an efficient solution for ubiquitous last-mile broadband access. In order to become a viable last-mile technology, WMNs must compete with existing broadband technologies, such as cable and DSL. In particular, WMNs have to meet two performance criteria: to provide high throughput in order to meet the ever-growing demand of network applications, and to guarantee fairness among different clients who usually pay the same flat rate for their subscriptions.
