High-Throughput and Congestion Avoidance for 802.11s

20120101_003511

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.
