There has been growing interest in using Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) because of their advantages such as easier to scale up and self-organization. We instigate whether increasing the number of available channels through the use of Partially Overlapping Channels (POCs) is always useful for improving the Quality of Service (QoS) of WMNs namely the throughput or delay. For the purpose of this thesis, we design a set of algorithms for: i) Channel assignment; ii) Transmission Configurations (TCs) which is a set of links with the ability of sending data simultaneously; iii) power control; and iv) delivery of packets to their destination in order to take advantage of POCs in WMNs.
We evaluate our proposed algorithms by a comprehensive set of numerical experiments. Numerical experiments indicate that using POCs leads not only to increase throughput of networks, but also it can decrease delay of packet delivery.
