A Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is a mesh network made up of radio nodes installed at each network user location. Each network user provides data to the next node. The area covered by radio nodes is called mesh clouds. Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) has many applications like video on demand, public security system, broadband internet for home and campus networking. Routing is a technique which selects the path in a network and forwards a packet through the network to a device on a different network. Routing metrics are a crucial part of routing protocols affecting the performance of WMN.
