Routing Protocols for Wireless Mesh Networks

Shubat S. Ahmeda and Eman A. Essied

Abstract—Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have emerged as a key technology for next-generation wireless networking. Routing in WMNs is challenging because of the unpredictable variations in the wireless environments. However, there is two ways to enhance the performance of routing protocol in WMNs. One way is to improve the metric used in the selection path; the second way is to modify the routing algorithms by considering new characteristics of WMN. In this paper, expected transmission time and interference aware metrics are used as the default metrics for single radio and Multi-radio AODV routing protocols respectively. The two routing protocols have been implementing in mesh wireless test bed consisting of up to 200 mesh nodes, using OMNeT++ Simulation tool. It has been demonstrated that multi-radio AODV routing protocol with iAWARE metric, gives better performance in terms of end to end delay, packet loss and throughput.

Index Terms—Reactive routing protocol, routing metrics, routing protocols, WMNs.
