Wireless Mesh Network Virtualization
Published:2012-12-09 Hit:728

 

Overview:

Wireless mesh network (WMN) has lots of obvious advantages including low cost, convenient deployment, wide coverage, high throughput, etc. These advantages make WMN quite suitable for last-mile Internet access. Governments and operators in many countries have paid attention to WMNs, and deployed increasingly more WMNs in practice. However, several challenging problems emerge in actual deployments, such as a user cannot get guaranteed bandwidth, packet loss rate is relatively high, and a mobile user tends to suffer from link disruption. Wireless mesh network virtualization is adopted to overcome these problems. Though establishing virtual networks, wireless mesh network virtualization technologies shield details of substrate networks to users, and serve users on their demands. Therefore, the wireless mesh network virtualization has great significance for the evolution of WMNs.
