Capacity Based Multicast Channel Assignment in Wireless Mesh Network
Wireless Mesh Networking (WMN) is an emerging technology that enables multihop wireless connectivity to areas where wiring or installing cables is difficult or expensive. Multicast is a form of communication that delivers information from a source to a group of destinations. In a single-channel WMN, all nodes share and communicate with each other via the same channel. In such a network, the throughput capacity of multicast degrades significantly as the network size increases. A critical factor that contributes to this rapid degradation is the co-channel interference in single-channel WMNs.
