A Load Balancing Strategy using Dynamic Channel Assignment for Wireless Mesh Networks

Mesut Güneş, Sadeq Ali Makram, Martin Wenig, Alexander Zimmermann, Ulrich Meis— 2007

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN) promise to provide high bandwidth and access to the Internet. Recent studies have shown that multi-channel WMN supported with several Wireless Network Interfaces (WNIC) per node can provide high performance. To achieve these benefits it requires a good channel assignment planning. Channel assignment is an important factor to support QoS and load balancing in the WMN. The channels have to be assigned according to the distribution of traffic load in the WMN. Since the number of available channels is limited, it is desired to allocate and reallocate channels dynamically on-demand. This paper proposes a dynamic channel assignment approach to balance the load aiming to maximize the throughput and utilize the channels efficiently.
