Monitoring Assisted Robust Routing in Wireless Mesh Networks

Abstract
In this paper, we present a monitoring assisted robust routing scheme for wireless mesh networks which exploits the broadcast nature of wireless transmissions at special routers with added monitoring functionalities. These routers passively listen to the transmissions in their neighborhood and compare the routing behavior against the routing state collectively maintained by them. If any inconsistency is found, as a result of software/hardware malfunction, these routers try to determine the node causing it and recover from it in a timely fashion. The scheme is developed for wireless mesh networks where the communication overhead is a critical issue. The performance evaluation of our scheme shows considerable improvement in reliability...

The scheme is developed for wireless mesh networks where the communication overhead is a critical issue. The performance evaluation of our scheme shows considerable improvement in reliability (i.e., delivery ratio achieved by standard routing protocols) with minimal overhead under situations of malfunctions.
