Detection of Link Failures and Autonomous Reconfiguration in WMNs
During their lifetime, multi-hop Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) experience frequent link failures caused by channel interference, dynamic obstacles, and/or applications' bandwidth demands. By reconfiguring these link failures ARS generates an effective reconfiguration plan that requires only local network configuration changes by exploiting channel, radio, and path diversity. ARS effectively identifies reconfiguration plans that satisfy QoS constraints. And ARS's online reconfigurability allows for real-time time failure detection and network reconfiguration. ARS is mainly evaluated in IEEE 802.11a networks. Its design goal is to reconfigure from network link failures accurately.
