FMHT: A Novel Framework for Mitigating Hidden Terminal Issue in Wireless Mesh Network

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 763)


Various researchers have theoretically discussed the Hidden terminal problem in Wireless Mesh Network (WMN), but almost no standard implementation or modeling is being explored in recent years when WMN is used in large-scale communication in the presence of interference and collision. Therefore, this paper presents a framework called as Framework for Mitigating Hidden Terminal FMHT that contributes to the identification of hidden terminal followed by compensating the communication loss by introducing a novel algorithm for enhancing channel capacity. The sole target was to improve the Quality-of-Service in WMN over different conditions of dynamic traffic. The proposed system also assists in formulating an effective decision for traffic flow admission where the simulation outcome shows better improvement in data delivery performance in contrast to existing techniques.
