High-Throughput and Congestion Avoidance for 802.11s


Cozybit pioneered 802.11n support for mesh networks. Our contribution to the Linux kernel quadrupled the available data rates for all mesh users, with mesh speeds up to 600 mbit/s.  As part of our quest to show that mesh is the high-speed, distributed network of the future, we implemented an advanced congestion avoidance algorithm (MCCA) which allows a mesh to efficiently schedule air time to reach high throughput in a mesh with many nodes, and (potentially) many hops.
