Molecular Architecture for Autonomic Wireless Mesh Networks

In Proceedings of the ACM student workshop - CoNEXT 2007. Columbia University, New York, NY, December 10-13, 2007

Monday 10 December 2007

We present a novel view on wireless mesh networks by adopting a
molecular analogy---mesh routers can be nuclei or electrons in an
atom. We assign roles to routers so that the resulting mesh is
composed of independent atoms using different channels to limit
interference. We define an efficient frame forwarding mechanism
between adjacent atoms by extending the operation of the standard
802.11 DCF access method. We propose two distributed and autonomous
algorithms for constructing and maintaining a mesh molecule with
desired properties. Our preliminary performance results indicate
significant performance improvement compared to proposed mechanisms
so far.
