Delay and Throughput in Random Access Wireless Mesh Networks

Summary: Delay and Throughput in Random
Access Wireless Mesh Networks
Nabhendra Bisnik, Alhussein Abouzeid

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs)
WMNs are becoming increasingly popular for
providing connectivity among communities
Consists of mesh clients and mesh routers
Mesh clients: devices that require connectivity
Mesh routers: form backbone of WMN
Compared to ad hoc networks, WMNs have
infrastructure in form of mesh routers hence better
performance is expected
Examples: SeattleWireless, MIT Roofnet, Wireless
Philadelphia, SoCalFreeNet
Mesh Routers
Compared to mesh clients, the routers have
enhanced features like larger transmission range,
ability to communication on multiple channels
