Metrics and test definition ( Project Netadded New Technologies to Avoid Digital Division in e-Divided areas)

Abstract : This document discusses the metrics and tests performed for evaluating the performance of wireless mesh networks. The solutions of two important research challenges in wireless mesh networks were analyzed in these tests. The first of the research challenge addressed was the estimation of residual bandwidth in wireless mesh networks. The residual bandwidth is defined as the difference between the network link/path capacity and the current throughput of the system. The residual bandwidth identifies the additional user demand that can still be satisfied under current conditions. If the residual bandwidth is accurately estimated, it can be used to improve the quality of service perceived by the users. Two different residual bandwidth estimation algorithms were developed in NETADDED project. The current report gives the test and simulation scenarios considered in the performance evaluation of these algorithms. The second challenge was to develop hardware for agricultural and environmental monitoring system based on wireless mesh networks. This hardware should be modular and satisfy the requirements of agricultural users. The hardware combines sensors and different communication interfaces such as Zigbee and 802.11 in order to both provide energy-efficient and long-term communications. This report gives details on the configurations of real network implementations and test scenarios used to evaluate the performance of the developed hardware.
