The capacity of wireless mesh networks is affected by many factors such as network architecture, network topology, traffic pattern, network node density, number of channels used for each node, transmission power level, and node mobility, etc. Mesh nodes rely on power-consumption constraints, mesh routers usually not strict constraints on power consumption. Mesh clients entail power efficient protocols and requires its communication protocols to be power efficient. Thus routing protocols for mesh routers may not be appropriate for mesh clients, because power efficiency is the primary concern. In this paper, the design of Power management in wireless mesh networks as a critical assignment to improve network performance has been addressed along with the spectrum spatial-reuse factor.
