Multicast Algorithms for Multi-Channel Wireless Mesh Networks
— Multicast is a key technology that provides efficient data communication among a set of nodes for wireless multi-hop networks. In sensor networks and MANETs, multicast algorithms are designed to be energy efficient and to achieve optimal route discovery among mobile nodes, respectively. However, in wireless mesh networks, which are required to provide high quality service to end users as the “last-mile” of the Internet, throughput maximization conflicting with scarce bandwidth has the paramount priority. We propose a Level Channel Assignment (LCA) algorithm and a Multi-Channel Multicast (MCM) algorithm to optimize throughput for multi-channel and multiinterface mesh networks. The algorithms first build a multicast structure by minimizing the number of relay nodes and hop count distances between the source and destinations, and use dedicated channel assignment strategies to improve the network capacity by reducing interference. We also illustrate that the use of partially ov...
