Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs)

Lin Chen


Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have been expected to be the ultimate solution for the next decade wireless networking. The attractions of WMNs include easy set-up on the fly, off-the-shelf cost, flexible interoperability with other networks, and highly reliable connectivity. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of current on-going research, academic and industrial activities for WMNs, such as cutting-edge technologies used in deploying WMNs, algorithms designed to improve the performance of WMNs. WMNs protocols and products are also presented to offer readers a broad view of WMNs, the exciting network for the next generation.
