This book collects articles featuring recent advances in the theory and applications of wireless mesh networking technology. The contributed articles, from the leading experts in the field, cover both theoretical concepts and system-level implementation issues. The book starts with the essential background on the basic concepts and architectures of wireless mesh networking and then presents advanced level materials in a step-by-step fashion.
The book includes a set of research and survey articles featuring the recent advances in theory and applications of wireless mesh networking technology which will be a significant component in the next generation (e.g., fourth generation) mobile communication networks. The book provides a unified view of the state-of-the-art achievements in the field. The contributed articles from the leading experts in this field cover both the theoretical concepts (e.g., information-theoretic analysis) and system-level implementation issues. The book starts with the essential background on the basic concepts and architectures of wireless mesh networking (through one/two survey articles), and then it presents advanced level materials in a step-by-step fashion so that the readers can follow the book easily. The rich set of references in each of the articles are invaluable to the researchers.
