Wireless mesh networking

This example was drawn on the base of wireless mesh network (WMN) diagram in the Ho Ting Cheng's blog from the website of the Broadband Communications Research Group, the University of Waterloo, Canada. "Wireless mesh/ad hoc networking is a promising technology for future broadband wireless access, supporting ubiquitous communications and mobile computing. Wireless mesh/ad hoc networking provides not only a viable, but also economical solution for both peer-to-peer applications and Internet access. Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) and wireless mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) can be established via LTE/LTE-A, IEEE 802.16, or IEEE 802.11 technologies. Nonetheless, the success of WMNs/MANETs is highly contingent on effective radio resource management and robust protocol design. Recently, wireless mesh/ad hoc networking for suburban/rural residential areas has been attracting a plethora of attention from industry and academia. With austere suburban/rural networking environments, multi-hop communications with decentralized resource allocation are desired. Specific contributions of this ongoing research include: Distributed Call Admission Control (CAC) and End-to-End Resource Allocation."
