Abstract

Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) have received increasing attention in recent years, due to their attractive advantages, like easy network deployment, stable topology, robustness, and reliable coverage. In disaster area, they allow us to quickly recover network access services even if the existing network have been seriously destroyed by terrible disaster. However, one of the most important challenge in disaster recovery is to optimize the throughput to ensure high network performance. In this paper, our research is towards the problem of throughput optimization in wireless mesh networks. We take into account the gateway selection and channel assignment that can efficiently relieve potential congestion, alleviate the interference of close-by transmissions, and maximize the throughput in wireless mesh networks.
