A Cross-Layer Framework of QoS Routing and Distributed Scheduling for Mesh Networks
Abstract—Cross-layer routing and scheduling algorithms design for wireless backhaul mesh network has attracted much research interest recently. The network is expected to support various types of applications with different quality of service (QoS) requirements from both routing and scheduling perspectives. Existing works do not efficiently integrate these QoS constraints in route discovery and maintenance phases and overlook the interaction between medium access control (MAC) and routing algorithms. In this work, we propose a novel crosslayer framework of QoS routing and distributed opportunistic scheduling for wireless mesh network, which provides resource reservation for QoS flows. Studies with different scheduling algorithms and routing protocols have shown that our algorithm successfully guarantees various QoS requirements and achieves higher network throughput when compared with other standard techniques.
