Optimal Cross-Layer Routing in 802.16 Mesh Networks with Different Classes of Service
Permanent interest in wireless mesh networks can be explained by their fast and easy deployment, self-configuring, self-healing, and large covered area. Substantially the advantages are related to possibility of every mesh station to work as end-terminal and as transit node at same time. In turn the capability gives rise to set of problems one from which is routing. In order to improve network efficiency and in compliance with next generation network's concept routing must be optimal, adaptive, QoS-based and take into account underlying link layer.
