—The control of the topology of a network makes it possible for the network nodes to reduce their power of transmission while ensuring that network connectivity is preserved. This paper explains the need for energy consumption control in Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) and proposes a Local Minimum Shortest-Path Tree (LM-SPT) algorithm for topology control for(More)
Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) is becoming a promising new technology for extending coverage to far-flung rural areas. This it achieves by linking the various wireless LANS (WLANs) in distant locations thus providing a vital mode complimentary to the wireless infrastructure-based networks. The benefits of WMN deployments, however, come with certain(More)
One of the main objectives of transmission power control (TPC) in wireless mesh networks (WMNs) for rural area applications is to guarantee successful packet transmission and reception (SPT-R) with low power consumption. However, the SPT-R depends on co-channel multiple access interferences (MAI) including the effects from hidden terminals. In this paper we(More)
