Abstract The focus of this paper is to offer a practical
multi-radio mesh network architecture that can realize
the benefits of multiple radios. Our architecture pro-
vides solutions to challenges in three key areas. The first
is the construction of a split wireless router that enables
modular wireless mesh routers to be constructed from
commodity hardware. The second is the design of a
centralized channel assignment algorithm that consid-
ers the inter-dependence between channel assignment
and routing in order to create high-throughput channel-
diversified routes. Third is the design and implemen-
tation of several communication protocols that are
necessary to make our architecture operational. Our
