IEEE 802.11s is an emerging IEEE 802.11 amendment, aiming at standardizing wireless mesh networking. As congestion is a major problem in wireless mesh networks, IEEE 802.11s addresses this problem by introducing the intra-mesh congestion control. In order to explore the potential of this mechanism, we describe two different IEEE 802.11s compliant congestion control mechanisms and discuss their respective benefits and limitations. Results from a simulative evaluation demonstrate that intra-mesh… CONTINUE READING
