Wireless Mesh Networks: Real-Time Test-Bed

In this chapter, we discuss an implementation of WMNs. The implementation is based on the draft 4.0 for the IEEE802.11s, which is made available at the time of implementation. The general architecture of IEEE802.11s and major protocols are same as the previous draft. Though, some names and features have been slightly changed in the draft 4.0. Researchers had been using networks simulator to evaluate the performance of WMNs. However, we believe that simulation results might not reflect the true performance of a WMN. Different results had been observed between researches involving tests based on real implementation. Therefore, a test-bed had been set up according to the current IEEE 802.11s draft 4.0 to evaluate the performance of the WMN protocol.
