Wireless mesh networks are a special kind of ad hoc networks in which most nodes are static. The application purpose of wireless mesh networks is also different than that of ad hoc networks and is focused on broadband access services to the Internet. Recent studies have shown that nodes in a wireless mesh network have to be equipped with several radio interfaces for high performance. However, one of the challenges that still faces high performance wireless mesh networks is the capacity reduction due to interference of wireless links. In this paper, we address the problem of assigning channels to nodes in wireless mesh networks. For this, we propose and study the cluster channel assignment (CCA) approach with the goal of reducing the network interference to increase the overall network performance.
