The optimal way to create a protocol in wireless mesh networks is to take into account a cross layer due to the interference among wireless transmissions. In this paper, the authors focus on designing and implementing a reliable multicast protocol called Mesh Reliable Multicast Protocol (MRMP). A recovery tree built dynamically which is joining with the multicast routing tree. Using the recovery tree the packet losses are repaired locally. This cross layer technique between network layer (multicast routing) and transport layer (reliability) using simulation results prove the effectiveness and optimization of cross layer in WMNs compare with the conventional layer.
