Abstract

Nowadays, Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is known as a promising technology for fast, robust and low-cost deployment of network infrastructures. Establishment of high throughput and reliable links, deduction of the interference effect and saving the energy are some of the serious concerns in construction of WMNs. Although, dominant solutions in organizing these networks are based on omnidirectional antennas, utilizing the directional antennas due to their potential advantages in terms of attaining higher throughput and coverage is a real interest in WMNs. In this paper, a novel framework for building well-organized and low power consumption WMNs by means of flexible directional antennas is presented which to the best of our knowledge can be considered as an innovative solution in deployment of optimized and green WMNs. Acquired preliminary results substantiate not only the efficiency of offered framework in flexible implementation of mesh networks, but also in construction of high-throughput and resilient WMNs.
