Wireless Mesh Networks WMNs consist of several Access Points APs of Wireless Local Area Networks WLANs interconnected through wireless links. It is necessary to monitor the networks in order to properly operate WMNs. However, it is very difficult to always monitor WMNs. Although several researches for visualization system of WMNs were done, there are some problems such as lack of dynamic information and past information. Our previous system also had problems such as lack of visualization…

SCUBA, an interactive focus and context visualization framework for metro-mesh health diagnosis, is presented and its contexts and its planar and hyperbolic views of a nearly 500 node mesh are described to demonstrate how it eases and expedites health diagnosis.

IEEE 802.11s wireless mesh networks: Framework and challenges

Neighborhood-Centric Congestion Control for Multihop Wireless Mesh Networks

This paper designs an AIMD-based rate-control protocol called Wireless Control Protocol (WCP), which recognizes that wireless congestion is a neighborhood phenomenon, not a node-local one, and appropriately reacts to such congestion.

Mesh networks: commodity multihop ad hoc networks

A survey of the current state of the art in off-the-shelf and proprietary solutions to build wireless mesh networks and the challenges of designing a high-performance, scalable, and cost-effective wireless mesh network are addressed.
