Abstract

Wireless mesh network (WMN) research is an emerging field in network communications. However, WMNs pose several difficulties in the transmission of information, especially time critical applications such as streaming video and audio. In this paper, we provide an overview of several research papers which utilize mesh networks for streaming multimedia. We compare the results of the research and the significance they bring to the field of wireless mesh networks. We then provide possible directions for future research into wireless mesh networks as they apply to streaming multimedia.
