Enhancing Performance Mesh Networks by Utilizing Excess Capacity
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have gained considerable interest in expanding IEEE 802.11 networks to large-scale enterprise and community scenarios, primarily because of its capability of providing wide-band network access to a significant number of users. However, the mesh nodes are typically limited in resources such as bandwidth, computation power and memory. Capacity limitation is one of the fundamental issues in wireless networks. Excess Capacity (EC) is the unused capacity. Here in this paper EC management techniques are used to improve network performance.
