Cross-Layer Design of DiffServ Architecture for End-to-End QoS in IEEE 802.16 Multi-Hop Mesh/Relay Networks with IEEE 802.11e WLANs

Because of the high cost of construction and maintenance of infrastructure-based networks, researchers have concentrated their efforts on studying wireless mesh/relay networks with lower cost and high scalability. Due to the demand for real-time multimedia communication in heterogeneous networks, IEEE 802.16 multi-hop mesh/relay networks with IEEE 802.11e… (More)
