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.
