In this paper, we present IAC, an interference aware admission control algorithm for use in wireless mesh networks. The core
concept of IAC is to use a low overhead dual threshold based approach to share the bandwidth information with its neighbors
in the interfering range. As a result, IAC guarantees that the shared wireless bandwidth is not overutilized and the quality of
all existing flows are preserved. Moreover, IAC takes into account the intraflow interference effect to estimate the bandwidth
consumption of the flow in a multihop path. We have further proposed two approaches of bandwidth allocation, FCFS and MCU,
and demonstrated that proper tuning of thresholds can lead to high performance of both schemes. Simulation results illustrate
that IAC effectively limits the overutilization of channel resources which in turn results in high throughput, low delay and low
packet loss rate for all admitted flows.
