Synopsis of Research
Title: Wireless communication model for a better quality of Service in Rural areas
Due to the small number of people in rural areas telephone companies do not find it cost effective to install telephone infrastructure there. Mesh potato (MP) is a solution. A MP is a plain old telephone(POT) connected to a wireless node/access point and allows individuals to make phone calls much like a land line. It is still in its infancy stages and has room for improvement. We seek to improve on it at the routing protocol. The protocol used is called better approach to mobile as-hoc networking or just B.A.T.M.A.N. In this project we are investigating the development of a new quality of service (QOS) routing scheme that will enable the MP to generate a better QoS in this network.
Expected out Come
The path selection metric will enable the wireless network to choose paths with better QoS requirements for the application seeking to transmit data. This will be done by improving the likelihood of a packet being routed on a path capable of providing the needed QoS. Also through this the path selection the metric would also be able to perform load balancing on the network and even allow for efficient routing that benefitís wireless networks that are constrained by power.
Field of study
wireles mesh networks (WMN): A wireless local area network (WLAN) is a data communication system implemented as an alternative for a wired LAN. Using radio waves, WLANs transmit and receive data over the air. The IEEE 802.11 family of standards, also known as WiFi is currently the mosr successful wireless networking standard for wireless LANs. This standard is virtually synonymous with the term WLAN today. WMNs are autonomic, once deployed in the field its nodes can automatically establish and maintain mesh connectivity among themselves effectively creating an ad-hoc network
