Enhancements for Wireless Mesh Networks

Principal Investigator(s): 
Mike Luby

ICSI's TCS team is working with Facebook to simulate, understand and enhance wireless mesh networks. The main goal of the effort is to build a high fidelity simulator for wireless mesh networks to understand the performance scaling of such networks and improve coverage, density, throughput. Potential enhancements include extending the reach and performance of wireless mesh networks i.e. to support more hops and/or provide superior internet connectivity, using technology which avoids deep changes to the network or wireless technology.
