A New Autonomous System (AS) for Wireless Mesh Network
Multi-hop wireless mesh networks usually experience frequent link failure due to certain reasons such as channel interference, dynamic obstacles occurring in a network and even because of bandwidth demands of applications. Failures in WMN (Wireless Mesh Networking) degrade the performance of WMN. Here the authors are proposing a new autonomous system for wireless mesh networks. The main objective of autonomous system for WMN is to reduce manual configuration of network involved in maintenance of WMN. The autonomous system for WMN is evaluated extensively through ns2-based simulation. The evaluation results show that autonomous system surpass existing approaches and schemes in failure-recovery. This system helps in improving channel-efficiency by more than 88.6%. It also increases throughput, mean success rate of overall system and meets the various applications' bandwidth demands in the network.
