Abstract:

Article Preview

The development of wireless broadband access in multimedia field has a higher requirement on wireless mesh networks’ performance. The design of routing metric is the key to improve the performance of wireless mesh networks. How to make full use of multi-interface technology in routing metric design to improve the network capacity has become a research focus. This article first analyzes the requirements of multi-interface wireless mesh networks on routing metric design, then analyzes strengths and weaknesses of nine routing metrics applied in wireless mesh networks currently, and finally compares the conditions of nine routing metrics capturing different performance indicators of wireless networks. As routing metrics like WCETT, MIC, WCETT-LB, IAWARE, ILA, MI and IDA all take channel interference problems into account, they are more suitable for multi-interface wireless mesh networks.
