Abstract [en]

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are one of the key technologies that is likely to play an important role in wireless networking in the next decade. They will help to realize the long-lasting dream of network connectivity anywhere and anytime with simplicity and low cost. Their capability of self-organization significantly reduces the complexity of network deployment and maintenance, and thus, requires minimal upfront investment. The main objective of this master thesis is to create a Wireless Mesh Network test-bed based on the project Open80211s in order to analyze the performance of this type of networks. The goals of this master thesis are to build and verify two installation packages for evaluating 802.11s WMNs. The first package will be based on Ubuntu Linux using the open80211s implementation and the second one will be based on the NS-3 network simulator. The verification includes performing tests on the performance and the quality of the network for typical topologies and traffic loads, and comparing the results between both systems and with the corresponding theoretic values. The main deliveries and results are two systems where we can test WMN technology. On one side, there will be a WMN test-bed in which real conditions can be analyzed, and on the other side there will be a WMN in which it will be possible to simulate a topology and check whether the results agree with reality.
