Abstract: The performance of multi-channel multi-radio (MC-MR) wireless mesh networks (WMNs) can be improved significantly with the increase in number of channels and radios. Despite the availability of multiple channels in several of the current wireless standards, only a few of them are non-overlapping and many channels are partially overlapped. In this paper, we formulate the joint channel assignment and flow allocation problem for MC-MR WMNs as a mixed integer linear program (MILP). Unlike most of the previous studies, we ...
