More than providing a wireless structure for Internet access, Wireless Mesh Networks are being challenged to support diverse kinds of multimedia applications such as Voice over IP and video streaming in publish-subscriber and peer-to-peer service models. In this context, several routing metrics have been proposed to improve the routing performance as well(More)
The infrastructure of mobile grid presents some challenges to allow the interaction between mobile devices and grid environments, such as (a) applications submission and monitoring facilities in an automated and coordinated manner, (b) disconnections during execution of applications, and (c) selection of suitable grid resources for their execution. This(More)
Software Defined Networking (SDN) has emerged as a new paradigm that highly increase the network management flexibility through simple but powerful abstractions. The key idea is decoupling the control plane, which makes the forward decisions, from the data plane, which effectively makes the forward. However, the OpenFlow, the main SDN enabler, is designed(More)
Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) provide ubiquitous Internet access for mobile users by integrating wired and wireless networks and are a valuable component of new generation communication systems. As gateways towards wired networks are potential bottlenecks, load balancing between multiple gateways plays a central role in the performance of the WMNs. This is(More)

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are being called upon to improve their management policies to support a wide range of multimedia applications. As gateways towards wired networks are potential bottlenecks, cluster load balancing routing methods between multiple gateways play a central role in the routing management of the WMNs. This is especially important for(More)
