Non-root-based Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol for Wireless Mesh Networks

Provided by: Science & Engineering Research Support soCiety (SERSC) Topic: Security Date Added: Mar 2013 Format: PDF
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are wireless networks that are composed of mesh routers and mesh clients. Mesh routers have minimal mobility and form the backbone of WMNs. IEEE 802.11s-based WMNs have a default routing protocol, namely, a Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP). In tree-based proactive mode, HWMP is completely centralized and constrained by the root node, which causes a bottleneck at the root node. In reactive mode, HWMP always initiates path discovery message broadcasting, which uses unnecessary power resources.
