In order to overcome the negotiation procedure bottleneck of the standard DCF in wireless mesh networks, the authors propose a new channel reservation function (CRF) that reduces the negotiation overhead of the DCF, which as a result reduces the overall transmission delay effectively without of any extra bandwidth consumption. Furthermore, the authors provide an analytical model for the proposed scheme for which the simulation results measure the amount that the new method can reduce the average total delay for both regular and fragmented mesh topologies demonstrating superiority of the new method over the classic 802.11 solution. Additionally, the authors extend the scheme to multichannel CRF upon which the proposed method can be used for multichannel applications.
