Abstract This paper presents a fair and efficient rate control mechanism, referred to as congestion-aware fair rate control (CFRC), for IEEE 802.11s-based wireless mesh networks. Existing mechanisms usually concentrate on achieving fairness and achieve a poor throughput. This mainly happens due to the synchronous rate reduction of neighboring links or nodes of a congested node without considering whether they actually share the same bottleneck or not.» Read the summary
