Distributed Channel Assignment Algorithm Based on Traffic Awareness in Wireless Mesh Networks

Distributed Channel Assignment Algorithm Based on Traffic Awareness in Wireless Mesh Networks Recently, wireless mesh network (WMN) technology recently has been used in various industries. Especially, a number of multi-channel assignment schemes have been presented to improve the throughput of IEEE 802.11-based multi-hop WMN. However, performance of the conventional multi-channel assignment schemes is not enough to satisfy the industry requirements. We, thus, should study more about the multi-channel assignment scheme in order to enhance the performance. This paper proposes a novel channel assignment scheme that employs multi-channel and multi-Interface in the WMN. The proposed scheme obtains the traffic information of the network and does the efficient channel assignment without any message exchanges. We verify the efficiency of the proposed scheme through the mathematical modeling and the real-world experiments. The results show that the proposed scheme improves the throughput of the network compared with the conventional schemes. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Wireless Personal Communications Springer Journals
