Novel routing paradigms for wireless Mesh Networks

Maddalena Nurchis
The increasing desire of ubiquitous Internet access has recently promoted the deployment of wireless multi-hop networks in several application domains. Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) provide significant benefits over existing wirelessmulti-hop networking paradigms, offering a suitable solution for a wide range of application scenarios, spanning frompublic safety communications to community-based networks and metro scale municipal networks. Routing design is crucial to guarantee robust communication through the mesh backbone. Traditional unicast routing has shown to be ineffective...
