Abstract: The Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is a promising solution for low-cost network access. In WMNs, a mobile station (STA) associates with one of the nearby mesh access points (MAPs) that are connected to a wireless multi-hop backhaul. The state-of-the-art association metrics proposed for WMNs still adopt the design methodology from WLANs and cannot make good use of the network resource. In addition, there are very few works on optimal association in WMNs. In this thesis, firstly, we propose heuristic association and re-association control schemes for static and dynamic networks, respectively. Then we formulate and propose approximation algorithms for the problem of optimal association in WMNs, considering three types of fairness objectives (max-min, proportional, and utility-based). Finally, we propose a resource management framework that jointly considers association control, MAP channel assignment, and STA bandwidth allocation. We demonstrate the superior performance of the proposed schemes via simulations using ns-3 and MATLAB simulators.
