Description

A promising new technology, wireless mesh networks are playing an increasingly important role in the future generations of wireless mobile networks. Characterized by dynamic self-organization, self-configuration, and self-healing to enable quick deployment, easy maintenance, low cost, high scalability, and reliable services, this technology is becoming a vital mode complementary to the infrastructure-based wireless networks.

Wireless Mesh Networking: Architectures, Protocols and Standards is the first book to provide engineers, students, faculties, researchers, and designers with a comprehensive technical guide covering introductory concepts. It addresses advanced and open issues in wireless mesh networks and explores various key challenges and diverse scenarios as well as emerging standards such as those for capacity, scalability, extensibility, reliability, and cognition. It focuses on concepts, effective protocols, system integration, performance analysis techniques, simulation, experiments, and future research directions. This volume contains illustrative figures and allows for complete cross-referencing on routing, security, spectrum management, MAC, cross-layer optimization, load-balancing, multimedia communication, MIMO, and smart antenna, etc. It also details information on the particular techniques for efficiently improving the performance of a wireless mesh network.

Presenting a solid introduction, Wireless Mesh Networking: Architectures, Protocols and Standards elucidates problems and challenges in designing wireless mesh networks.
