WMM: Wireless Mesh Monitoring

Tese submetida para provas de mestrado em Engenharia de Redes de Comunicações, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa.


This work presents a novel adaptive cluster-based monitoring scheme for wireless mesh networks. Nodes self-organize in semi-circular clusters and monitoring information from each cluster is aggregated by the cluster head and forwarded to the monitoring station. Clustering takes into account existing data-flows in the mesh network, to minimize the interference of the monitoring traffic on active streams. The proposed solution was evaluated using simulations and an experimental testbed deployed for the effect.
