A Novel Approach to Develop a Reliable Routing Protocol for Wireless Mesh Networks Using IEEE 802.11s and LTE Networks: A Survey Paper
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have emerged as a flexible and low-cost network infrastructure, where heterogeneous mesh routers managed by different users collaborate to extend the network coverage. IEEE 802.11s standard was defined as a wireless mesh network which extends IEEE 802.11 MAC standard. The protocols introduced by IEEE 802.11s paper are divided into pro-active, reactive or hybrid categories. This paper aims to improve the routing process of Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP) defined by IEEE 802.11s standard by interworking 802.11s network with LTE network.
