Hybrid Mesh Ad-Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing Protocol
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have recently gained increasing attention and have emerged as a technology with great potential for a wide range of applications. WMNs can be considered as a superset of traditional mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs), where the network is comprised of mobile client devices (MESH CLIENTs). In addition to MESH CLIENTs, a WMN can also contain relatively static devices called mesh routers (MESH ROUTERs). Such hybrid WMNs are characterized by a high level of heterogeneity, since static MESH ROUTERs are typically much less resource constrained than mobile MESH CLIENTs, and are also often equipped with multiple radio interfaces. Traditional ad-hoc routing protocols do not diļ¬€erentiate between these types of nodes and therefore cannot achieve optimal performance in hybrid WMNs. In this paper, we propose simple extensions to the Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol, which aim to take advantage of the heterogeneity in hybrid WMNs by preferentiall...
