IEEE 802.11s was designed to implement Wireless Mesh Network (WMN). Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP) is the routing protocol used in IEEE 802.11s. But external station’s (STA) mobility is not considered by IEEE 802.11s. Therefore, for handling both Internet and intranet packets a Session-to-Mobility Ratio (SMR)-based technique is implemented in this paper. The scheme efficiently handles mobility of external STA by reducing propagation of route management packets. Performance analysis and comparison of SMR-based scheme and IEEE 802.11s have been carried out. It has been observed that SMR-based scheme outperforms IEEE 802.11s.
