Design of Optimal a Wireless Mesh Network
Mahdi Mozaffari Legha, Mohammad Eftekharikenzerki, Marjan Karimi
In these days, IEEE802.16 protocol is being developed and in the next years, 802.16 modems will be used in every house to connect to the Internet through base-stations in both urban and rural areas. Since user bandwidth for connection to the Internet is limited, a large fraction of each modem’s bandwidth is not used. PPMN is a public peer-to-peer mesh network using the non-utilized bandwidth of independent 802.16 users. In this paper, we improve security and resiliency in the design of PPMN. Design performance is evaluated using simulation.
