ABSTRACT: Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are multi-radio, multi-hop networks with the ability of dynamically self configuring, self tuning, self-healing and self organizing. In WMN, transfer of data takes place to and from the access points (APs). Since wireless mesh networks are ad-hoc in nature, many routing protocols used for ad-hoc networks like AODV (Advanced on Demand Vector) are also used for WMNs by considering only the shortest route to destination. Data transfer through these protocols leads to congested routes and overloaded APs. Since, routing is a multi constraint problem. In order to reduce congestion and make routing decisions more reliable, routing decisions should be based on more than one constraint. For ensuring the route reliability, it is necessary to find out the route that lasts for longer time. This report is based on fuzzy logic, we have proposed a reliable routing scheme in order to obtain reliable route in WMNs. In this scheme for each node in wireless mesh network, we consider three parameters i.e. node residual energy, hop count and throughput. The proposed routing scheme maintains a reliable path from source to destination thus enhancing network life time and reduces number of packet loss during packet transmission. Simulation results indicate that proposed routing scheme has significant reliability enhancement as compared to other routing algorithms such as AODV. The simulation results show that the proposed routing scheme is effective and reliable.
