Transmission-Redundancy Reduction Based Multicast Error Control Protocol in Wireless Mesh Networks

In this paper, the authors investigate the redundant transmission problem, which deteriorates the protocol performance, in a multicast error control protocol: the Layer-divided Beacondriven Leader Based Protocol (LBLBP) in Wireless Mesh Network (WMN). In order to solve this problem, they propose a new protocol named Transmission-Redundancy-Reduction-LBLBP (TRRLBLBP) which adds redundancy processing into LBLBP. The TRRLBLBP firstly tries to make use of the topological information from other protocol layers, and then chooses one of the two redundancy reduction algorithms according to the network size.
