The success of mobile and ubiquitous computing, coupled with the increasing demand for applications with high Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) requirements, has brought great challenges to the future access networks. Thus, wireless mesh networks distinguish due to its flexibility, redundancy, low-cost and broadband capacity. However, aspects as scalability, availability and reliability, are still challenging. Following the limitations of existing solutions, this paper proposes the Multi-Service Resource Allocation in Wireless Mesh Networks (MIRA-WMN) for provisioning resources of wireless mesh networks compliant with IEEE 802.11e/s standard. The MIRA-WMN proposes a single solution to integrate QoS and connectivity resource control to efficiently support multi-user sessions. The MIRA-WMN was evaluated by simulations, which demonstrated its benefits in the data and control plane, as well as user's perception.
