The IEEE 802.11s standard is designed to support multi-hop mesh networking between WLAN devices. It features the HWMP (Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol) as its default path selection protocol which combines the proactive tree building mode and the on-demand path selection mode. The proactive mode can periodically maintain the lowest link cost route to the root node, but poses the path instability problem, where the path is unnecessarily changed when the path is updated. As a result, the… CONTINUE READING
