Performance Analysis of Wireless Mesh Network in Hospital Environment
In Wireless Mesh Network (WMN), the communications are made up of radio nodes which are organized in a mesh topology. In this paper, an analyze is made for the existing network at the Aravind eye hospital in Theni, in order to deploy WMN in the existing network to overcome the node failure, frequent maintenance of the nodes and failure of the link between the nodes. The hospital network consists of five rural vision centers connected to the main hospital. The routing between the nodes is done by using Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP) routing protocol. The performance analysis of the WMN in this hospital environment is evaluated by using various parameters in order to support video conferencing for rural patients.
