Li, Tianji and Leith, Douglas and Malone, David and Badarla, Venkataramana (2008) Achieving end-to-end fairness in 802.11e based wireless multi-hop mesh networks. In: Third International Conference on Communications and Networking in China, 2008. ChinaCom 2008, August 25-27, 2008, Hangzhou, China .
To mitigate the damaging impacts caused by interference and hidden terminals, it has proposed to use orthogonal channels in multi-hop wireless mesh networks. We demonstrate however that even if these issues are completely eliminated with perfectly assigned channels, gross unfairness can still exist amongst competing flows which traverse multiple hops. We propose the use of 802.lle's TXOP mechanism to restore/enforce fairness. The proposed scheme is simple, implementable using off-the-shelf devices and fully decentralised (requires no message passing).
