Measurement driven deployment of a two-tier urban mesh access network
Multihop wireless mesh networks can provide Internet access over a wide area with minimal infrastructure expenditure. In this work, we investigate key issues involved in deploying such networks including individual link characteristics, multihop application layer performance, and network-wide reliability and throughput. We perform extensive measurements ...
Experimental and analytical evalution of embedded link performance with small-scale channel fluctuations
We have deployed a first-of-its-kind, urban-scale wireless mesh network which provides Internet access to 1000's of users spanning multiple square kilometers in an underserved area in Houston, TX. However, in this and other urban environments, IEEE 802.11 link performance is both misunderstood and poor-performing due to complex node interactions which ...
