Abstract: Careful Channel Assignment (CA) and Link Scheduling (LS), tuned to the traffic demand in the network, are required to efficiently utilize Multi-Channel Multi-Radio (MC-MR) Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs). In a dynamic network, where the traffic demand keeps changing with time, we need to reconfigure the CA and LS to suit to the changing demands. But, a change in CA leads to disruption of traffic resulting in a less reliable and lossy network. In this paper, we propose a theoretical framework to evaluate the efficiency of ...
