The emergence of real-time applications and their widespread usage in communication have generated the need to provide quality-of-Service (QoS) support in wireless networks environments. One of the most crucial mechanisms of a model for providing QoS support is the traffic regulation. In the aim of better representing and analyzing the decision making policy of the traffic adaptation process in wireless mesh networks (WMN), we propose a novel model named FuzzyWMN. The proposed model combines the essential notions of both fuzzy logic theory and Petri nets; this enables FuzzyWMN to achieve the traffic adaptation process in the context of dynamic network events characterized by the uncertainty and imprecision information, due to the dynamic traffic behavior, channels interference, etc. The evaluation of FuzzyWMN performances, compared to AIMD-SWAN and IEEE 802.11, was studied under different network and traffic conditions. The promising results obtained from extensive simulations confirm that the traffic adaptation based on the fuzzy design can achieve stable end-to-end delay, and good throughput under different network conditions.
