Wireless mesh networks, also known as “community wireless networks”, have been attracting much attention due to its promising technology. It is becoming a major
avenue for the fourth generation of wireless mobility. This is due to the revaluation of using basic radio frequency physics to provide a robust, flexible, standard-based architecture that offers instant mobile broadband communications to different
communities. Communication in large-scale wireless networks
can create bottlenecks for scalable implementations of
computationally intensive applications. A class of crucially
important communication patterns that have already received
considerable attention in this regard are group communication
operations, since these inevitably place a high demand on
network bandwidth and have a consequent impact on algorithm execution times. Multicast communication has been among the most primitive group capabilities of any message passing network. It is central to many important distributed applications in Science and Engineering and fundamental to the implementation of higher-level communication operations such as gossip, gather, and barrier synchronisation. Existing solutions offered for providing multicast communications in WMN have severe restriction in terms of almost all performance characteristics. Consequently, there is a need for the design and
analysis of new efficient multicast communication schemes for this promising network technology. Hence, the aim of this study is to tackle the challenges posed by the continuously growing need for delivering efficient multicast communication over WMN. In particular, this study presents new load balancing aware algorithms with the aim of enhancing the QoS in the multicast communication over WMNs.
