Broadcast Strategies with Probabilistic Delivery Guarantee in Multi-Channel Multi-Interface Wireless Mesh Networks

Abstract : Multi-channel multi-interface Wireless Mesh Networks permit to spread the load across orthogonal channels to improve network capacity. Although broadcast is vital for many layer-3 protocols, proposals for taking advantage of multiple channels mostly focus on unicast transmissions. In this paper, we propose broadcast algorithms that fit any channel and interface assignment strategy. They guarantee that a broadcast packet is delivered with a minimum probability to all neighbors. Our simulations show that the proposed algorithms efficiently limit the overhead.
