The use of switched-beam antennas for Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) has gained a lot of attention recently. However, it has not been concluded yet which protocol is suitable for this approach. One interesting protocol named as Synchronous Collision Resolution (SCR) has been proposed to manage the packet schedule between mesh routers. The SCR concept is of advantage over other protocols such as CSMA/CA and TDMA. Nevertheless, the evaluation of SCR protocol has never been performed in literatures so far. Therefore, in this paper, the study of switched-beam antennas in cooperating with SCR protocol is proposed by concerning both desired and interference mesh routers. The simulation results confirm the success of using switched-beam antennas for WMN using SCR protocol.
