Wireless Mesh Network Routing around Connectivity Holes with Triangulation based Path Planning


Objectives: Wireless Mesh Network is a promising technology in delivering the last mile broadband access. The smart routing technique has been defined during this paper for mesh networks with path selection along the connectivity hole avoidance using pushback mechanism. This paper also deploys a load balancing algorithm among the best paths available. The new design also incorporates the multi-channel triangulation method for the purpose of the optimal path selection among the multiple options. Energy aware routing mechanism is also deployed for evaluating the energy consumed during this network. Methods: The mesh network topology with 120 mesh network nodes deployed randomly over the given area of 100 x 100 meters in order to simulate the multiple networks zones. The network has been majorly divided into the three major zones in order to depict the mesh network zones, which are signified with the different colors in the given topology. The initial connectivity is entirely based upon the transmission radius of the nodes, which keeps the initial connectivity module in to the one-hop connections formation. Findings: The planned methodology compares with the existing routing scheme of Delaunay Triangulation. The performance parameters which compared with existing technique are average distance stretch and packet drop ratio. In this paper, other evaluation metrics are determined which are throughput, latency, number of aggregators and energy consumption. Novelty of the Study: The experimental observations have shown that planned routing mechanism outperforms to other existing scheme in terms of average distance stretch and packet drop ratio.
