This paper proposes an Installment Coordination Scheduling-based Distributed Fair Queuing algorithm in wireless mesh networks, considering such problems as unfair channel bandwidth among nodes and location-dependent competition. Through the establishment of installment coordination scheduling model, data communication process of nodes is divided into three periods, namely, sending periods, compensation periods and dormancy periods. According to model parameters, time constraint functions are designed to limit the execution time length of each period. Each node completes fair transmission of network packet together in accordance with fixed coordination scheduling rule of model. Our simulations and analysis demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed design in network throughput and fairness.
