Many routing metrics have been proposed to improve the performance of Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). Most of these routing metrics describe intra-flow and inter-flow interference respectively, which brings in adjustable parameters or results in non-isotonicity. However, the adjustable parameters, used to balance the intra-flow and inter-flow interference, are difficult to adapt to the network status, and non-isotonicity makes the design of routing metric complicated. In this paper, the authors propose an isotonic Metric of Expected Delay (MED) in Multi-Radio Multi-Channel (MRMC) WMNs.
