  author={Marcel Ohanga Odhiambo and Anish Mathew Kurien}
networks have emerged as the next evolution in wireless network technology. The primary reason for this sudden emergence emanates from the advantages provided by the mesh networking technology. Wireless mesh networks provides ease of installation, cost effective deployments, high level of scalability in a coverage area and capacity, network flexibility and self-configuration capabilities. Furthermore, wireless mesh networks are expected to provide seamless and ubiquitous wireless communication…

A survey of cross‐layer protocols for IEEE 802.11 wireless multi‐hop mesh networks
The current research efforts in cross-layer protocol design using the IEEE 802.11 standard for wireless multi-hop mesh networks are summarized in identifying unsolved issues that are a promising avenue to further research.


Congestion-aware cross-layer design for wireless ad hoc networks
Simulations show that rate adaptation in MAC layer improves the network performance in terms of throughput, delivery ratio, and end-to-end delay; using congestion information from MAC layer in routing discovery improves the performance of the network benefited from overall network load balance.
Cross-Layer Optimized Video Streaming Over Wireless Multihop Mesh Networks
The results demonstrate the merits and the need for cross-layer optimization in order to provide an efficient solution for real-time video transmission using existing protocols and infrastructures and provide important insights for future protocol and system design targeted at enhanced video streaming support across wireless mesh networks.
Multimedia over Wireless Mesh Networks: Results from a Real Testbed Evaluation
The limits of multimedia streaming with today's WMN technology are delineated, such as home environments and offices, using the Mesh Connectivity Layer, part of the Microsoft Mesh Toolkit 2005.
Application-oriented link adaptation for IEEE 802.11
The thesis addresses the ever-persistent problem of quality guarantees in wireless data networks by combining a stable throughput-based solution with a rapid link-quality feedback supplement into a novel controller that has both swift response and stable performance.
Exploiting congestion information in network and higher layer protocols in multihop wireless ad hoc networks
This work examines the use of congestion information to avoid network hotspots, and results based on modifications to the dynamic source routing protocol (DSR) and TCP demonstrate substantial performance improvement in terms of scalability, packet delivery, overhead, and fairness.
Performance of TCP and UDP protocols in multi-hop multi-rate wireless networks
This paper proposes a bandwidth-based ad hoc routing protocol and looks at how to integrate QoS with routing and examines the transport layer protocols such as the TCP and UDP over multi-rate multi-hop wireless networks.
An improved UDP protocol for video transmission over Internet-to-wireless networks
Results show that the video quality can be substantially improved by utilizing the frame error information at UDP and application layer, and several maximal distance separable (MDS) code-based packet level error control coding schemes are proposed.

It is shown that serial MDTMR achieves reasonable tree connectivity while maintaining disjointness of two trees, and that it outperforms single tree multicast communication.
Link adaptation strategy for IEEE 802.11 WLAN via received signal strength measurement
A novel link adaptation algorithm is presented, which aims to improve the system throughput by adapting the transmission rate to the current link condition and it is shown that the proposed algorithm closely approximates the ideal case with the perfect knowledge about the channel and receiver conditions.
A high-throughput path metric for multi-hop wireless routing
Measurements taken from a 29-node 802.11b test-bed demonstrate the poor performance of minimum hop-count, illustrate the causes of that poor performance, and confirm that ETX improves performance.
