Predicting Performance of Channel Assignments in Wireless Mesh Networks through Statistical Interference Estimation

Srikant Manas Kala M Reddy Bheemarjuna Reddy Tamma
Abstract: Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) deployments are poised to reduce the reliance on wired infrastructure especially with the advent of the multi-radio multi-channel (MRMC) WMN architecture. But the benefits that MRMC WMNs offer viz., augmented network capacity, uninterrupted connectivity and reduced latency, are depreciated by the detrimental effect of prevalent interference. Interference mitigation is thus a prime objective in WMN deployments. It is often accomplished through prudent channel allocation (CA) schemes ...
