To facilitate higher bandwidth for multimedia traffic, modern routers support simultaneous multi-band communication, leading to less interference, higher capacity and better reliability. However, there is lack of quantitative evaluation to judge whether multi-band is better than single band router in realistic scenarios. The authors' objective is to propose a scheduling algorithm for multi-band routers and compare single band and multi-band system with different allocation policies. They have used different scheduling algorithms for multi-band routers which transmit different classes of traffic through different frequency bands, thereby achieving improved performance.
