IEEE 802.11s wireless mesh networks: Framework and challenges

  title={IEEE 802.11s wireless mesh networks: Framework and challenges},
  author={Xudong Wang and Azman Osman Lim},
  journal={Ad Hoc Networks},
Wireless mesh networking based on 802.11 wireless local area network (WLAN) has been actively explored for a few years. To improve the performance of WLAN mesh networks, a few new communication protocols have been developed in recent years. However, these solutions are usually proprietary and prevent WLAN mesh networks from interworking with each other. Thus, a standard becomes indispensable for WLAN mesh networks. To meet this need, an IEEE 802.11 task group, i.e., 802.11s, is specifying a… CONTINUE READING
