The design/planning of WMNs is a key phase before any deployment. Few proposals can be found in the open literature that deals with the design problem; however, they do not take into account all the parameters that have an impact on the outcome of the design and they assume the existence of a physical topology where the location and the characteristics of(More)
Our goal is to propose a unified/generalized model for the Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) design problem taking into account all the parameters that have a significant impact on WMNs. In the WMNs design literature, different studies take into account traffic demand, interference, multi-channel, transmission power, potential locations of wireless(More)
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are reliable. However, in dense WMNs, interferences cause a significant degradation of end-to-end throughput of multi-hop paths. If WMNs are designed without reliability in mind, multipath routing and non-overlapping routes (i.e., protection routes) to gateways are not sufficient to ensure a reliable WMN design. Indeed, when(More)
