Abstract [en]

In multi-radio wireless mesh networks, a networkdevice simultaneously transmits packets over different channelsby using multiple radios. Such frequency diversity not only increasesthroughput but makes multi-path routing approaches extremelyinteresting. This is because the channel diversity reducesthe risk for intra- and inter-flow interference. A fundamentalproblem to solve is the forwarding strategy which determineswhich packets to be sent over what multi-path segments atany given time. Ideally, the forwarding strategy should scheduleflows according to the capacity constraints imposed by thechannel assignment. However, the possibility to improve MAClayer efficiency by aggregating small packets into larger onesis reduced when packets are forwarded to different next-hops.In this paper, we develop a novel packet forwarding strategyfor multi-radio mesh networks that combines the benefits ofmulti-path routing with packet aggregation. In our cross-layerapproach, we effectively trade-off aggregation opportunities withchannel diversity. Simulation results show that our approach canimprove network throughput and delay by up to 15 percentand 25 percent, respectively, compared with aggregation unawareforwarding strategies.
