Abstract:

The objective of this research is to improve the effectiveness of scalable wireless mesh networks in bulk data transfers and multimedia streaming. Several studies have shown that the performance of 802.11-based mesh networks degrades rapidly as the number of hops increases. Mesh networks based on newer technologies, such as WiMAX, could alleviate these problems by using innovative protocols which we propose to develop. Wireless mesh networks are vulnerable to security attacks. Current security approaches may be effective to a particular threat in a specific protocol layer, but lack a comprehensive mechanism needed to prevent counter attacks in a different protocol layer. This research will also address this security weakness. SFC has assembled a distinguished team to address this proposal. In conjunction with our university research partner, the University of Cincinnati, we are proposing a novel and innovative approach to meeting the demanding requirements listed in the solicitation. At the conclusion of Phase II, we plan to have a pre-production version of our product ready for immediate deployment in selected applications.
