Video transmission over IP networks requires appropriate conditions of quality of service, in order to ensure the integrity of the image, which still represents a challenge to be overcome in wireless mesh networks due to traffic capacity limitations inherent to its architecture. In this work we evaluate the performance of high-resolution video over multi-hop mesh networks and we propose a suitable GOP size for encoding video to be streamed, based on traffic conditions to minimize the loss of quality. Experiments were carried out in a wireless mesh network planned for real testing within a 1500m2 area of the main UFAM campus, using the IEEE 802.11a and 802.11n network standards.
