To facilitate higher bandwidth for multimedia traffic, modern mobile routers support simultaneous multi-band communication, leading to less interference, higher capacity and better reliability. However, there exists no quantitative evaluation to judge whether multi-band is better than single band router in realistic scenario. The authors' main objective in this paper is to find performance of different class of traffic under single and multi-band system with respect to utilization. In this paper, they have used different scheduling algorithms for multi-band routers which transmit different classes of traffic through different frequency bands in order to achieve improved performance.
