In this paper, we theoretically analyze the performance in terms of end-to-end call acceptance in Multi-Channel Multi-Radio (MC-MR) Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) using queueing theory techniques. We study the impact of the routing protocol and the channel assignment algorithm on the end-to-end call acceptance and address the issue of providing deterministic QoS guarantees to a designated set of nodes. The significance of our work lies in providing an insight into the bounds of the probability of call acceptance under a given ...
