Abstract: In wireless mesh networks, channel allocation is an important issue. In this paper, we present a genetic algorithm (GA)-based channel allocation scheme for IEEE 802.11 wireless mesh networks through university-industry collaboration. In particular, the design and implementation were based on reall ife industrial experience. The aim is allocate the channels effectively and efficiently by taking into consideration the channel conditions of all wireless mesh routers on a global basis. A GA-based method provides an effective solution to tackle the channel allocation problem. Furthermore, we developed an automatic and effective system to deploy the channel allocations to the wireless mesh routers. To validate the GA-based channel allocation algorithm, it was both implemented and tested using real wireless mesh routers.
