Dear all,
[apologies if you receive multiple posting]

Just a friendly reminder of the seminar today.
Date: 03/05/2012

Time: 12:30 - 1:30 PM

Venue: Engineering Building 4201

Speaker: Li Xiao

Title: Multipath Routing in Wireless Mesh Networks

Host: Songqing Chen


The wireless mesh network offers a breakthrough approach that delivers
wireless services for a large variety of applications. Equipped with
recent significant advances in wireless radios, multi-radio/multi-channel
mesh routers provide both great promise and substantial research
challenges to significantly enhance network performance while dramatically
reducing cost. In this talk, I will present our research efforts on
multi-path routing in wireless mesh networks. Multi-source video on-demand
streaming has been applied in wired networks with great success. However,
it remains a challenging task in wireless networks due to wireless
interference. I will introduce our multi-path routing and rate allocation
study to support multi-source video on-demand applications in wireless
mesh networks.
