Abstract: The maximum utilization of Multi Channel-Multi Radio Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) can be achieved only by intelligent Channel Assignment (CA) and Link Scheduling (LS). A common CA and LS may not be optimal, in terms of utilization of underlying network resources, for every traffic demand in the network. Using the best CA and LS for every traffic demand results in channel reassignments which in turn lead to traffic disruption in the network. This makes WMNs very unreliable. In this paper, we present a simple, general, ...
