Wireless Mesh Networks (WMN’s), Relay Nodes (RN’s), Adaptive Informant Factor (AIF), Scalability


The demand for wireless communication applications are increasing considerably; therefore many constrained features like computational capabilities, scalability, energy restoration, memory and presence of unreliable communication medium are the major challenges. The mesh network generally contain a huge amount of traffic, therefore it is essential to build some association policies that can tackle a different type of traffic by selecting appropriate RN. Considering a WMN environment, in this study we proposed the AIF based RN selection approach that is implemented using the centralized network model. This helps to manage the link selection in the mesh network through selecting suitable RN for the particular application. The scalability requirement generally depends upon the characteristics of data flow at wireless mesh network and suitability of RN that is used to serve signal to the user. Here, we are going to get suitable relay node among the A RNs composing the mesh wireless network and the wireless user can be associated with the selected RN that can provide scalability in data flow as per request of the new flow. In order to evaluate the network performance, our proposed model is compared with respect to state-of-art techniques.
