QoS Improvement in Mesh Networks Using Adaptive Channel Assignment, Scheduling and Routing Protocols
In Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) the most widely used random channel access mechanisms are IEEE 802.11 DCF and EDCA. These two mechanisms are based on CSMA/CA and inefficient to eliminate effectively hidden terminal and exposed terminal problems. In this paper, the authors propose a set of efficient Multi-Radio Multi-Channel (MRMC) assignment, scheduling and routing protocols based on Latin squares for WMNs with MRMC communication capabilities, called ''M4'', i.e., the multiple access scheduling in multi-radio multi-channel mesh networking.
