Performance Evaluation of Multi-Channel Wireless Mesh Networks with Embedded Systems
Many commercial Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) products are available in the marketplace with their own proprietary standards, but interoperability among the different vendors is not possible. Open source communities have their own WMN implementation in accordance with the IEEE 802.11s paper standard, Linux open80211s project and FreeBSD WMN implementation. While some studies have focused on the test bed of WMNs based on the open80211s project, none are based on the FreeBSD. In this paper, the authors built an embedded system using the FreeBSD WMN implementation that utilizes two channels and evaluated its performance.
