Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are attracting a lot of attention from wireless network researchers. Node placement problems have been investigated for a long time in the optimization field due to numerous applications in location science. In our previous work, we evaluated WMN-GA system which is based on Genetic Algorithms (GAs) to find an optimal location(More)
In this paper, we used our proposed and implemented system based on Hill Climbing algorithm, called WMN-HC for mesh router node placement in WMNs. We evaluate and compare the performance of the proposed system for different movement methods. We took into consideration Normal and Uniform distributions of mesh clients. We use as evaluation metrics giant(More)
In this paper we evaluate the performance of WMN-HC system for node placement in WMNs. For evaluation we considered different number of mesh routers and mesh clients. We considered four different mesh client distributions. The simulation results show that our proposed and implemented WMN-HC system can find the optimal number of mesh routers for covering a(More)
