Abstract

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) have many advantages such as low cost and increased high speed wireless Internet connectivity, therefore WMNs are becoming an important networking infrastructure. In our previous work, we implemented a Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) based simulation system for node placement in WMNs, called WMN-PSO. Also, we implemented a simulation system based on Hill Climbing (HC) for solving node placement problem in WMNs, called WMN-HC. In this paper, we implement a hybrid simulation system based on PSO and HC, called WMN-PSOHC. We compare WMN-PSO with WMN-PSOHC by conducting computer simulations. The simulation results show that the WMN-PSOHC has better performance than WMN-PSO.
