Providing fairness and maximising throughput in 802.11 wireless mesh network.
Masters thesis, National University of Ireland Maynooth.
The thesis addresses two questions: how to provide fairness in 802.11 wireless mesh networks
and how to maximize the overall throughput in an distributed way. Fairness and
efficiency are two fundamental issues in wireless networks, which are widely researched in
both wired and wireless networks. We consider 802.11 wireless networks due to their ubiquity
and practical importance. The likely trend of the wireless networks is toward the use
of multi-hop wireless networks (so-called mesh networks), which provide the potential of
serving the users in larger converage with higher throughput. However, achieving fairness
and efficiency remain bottleneck issues in the rollout of production-quickly mesh networks.
