Optimization of Gateway Deployment With Load Balancing and Interference Minimization in Wireless Mesh Networks

In a Wireless Mesh Network (WMN), gateways act as the bridges between the mesh backbone and the Internet, and significantly affect the performance of the whole network. Hence, how to determine the optimal number and positions of gateways, i.e., gateway deployment, is one of the most important and challenging topics in practical and theoretical research on designing a WMN. Although several approaches have been proposed to address this problem, few of them take load balancing and interference minimization into account.
