Multimedia for Mobile Nodes in a Wireless Mesh Network


This project committed to address the key problems for supporting multimedia over wireless mesh networks. We have identified that power, delay, and buffer management are the key challenges. We provided solutions to the above challenges by deriving novel algorithms, novel protocols, and optimizations. We have also evaluated our achievements over IEEE 802.11 (WiFi) wireless mesh testbed and extended our studies to the IEEE 802.16 (WiMax) research domain and testbed experiments.
