VoIP on Wireless Meshes: Models, Algorithms and Evaluation
—We study the problem of supporting VoIP calls in a wireless mesh network. Specifically, we propose solutions for call admission control (CAC) and route selection for VoIP calls. Call admission decisions must evaluate how the capacity of the mesh network is utilized by the existing calls. We address this issue via a measurement-based modeling effort to model mutual interference between wireless links. The modeling approach evaluates whether capacity constraints (or, required QoS metrics) will be satisfied if a new call is admitted with a given route. Evaluations with a 6-node 802.11a testbed demonstrate excellent accuracy of the model and thus also the CAC performance. We address the issue of route selection by also using a modeling approach that considers models of transmission and interference ranges to develop a polynomial-time algorithm to search for feasible routes. This problem takes exponential time for wireless networks without such modeling. In addition to studying feasibi...
