Investigating Depth-Fanout Trade-Off in WiMAX Mesh Networks

In the last years, Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have been an emerging technology for providing cost/effective broadband Internet access. The research done insofar usually assumes that the wireless backbone of a WMN is built using IEEE 802.11 technologies. Such an approach has the drawback of leading to dense and sub-optimal deployments, due to the short… CONTINUE READING
