Method and apparatus for supporting data flow control in a wireless mesh network
WO 2006091377 A3
Abstract
A method and apparatus for supporting data flow control in a wireless mesh network by reporting to a source mesh point (MP) in a particular path the allowed data rate that each MP in the path may support. The source MP sends, over the path, a data packet destined which includes a flow identification (ID) field and an available data rate field to a destination MP. An acknowledgement (ACK) packet including the same fields is sent in response to the data packet. The source MP adjusts a data rate in accordance with the available data rate field in the ACK packet. Alternatively, a congestion indication field may be used instead of the available data rate field to indicate that congestion exists on the path. Additionally, a quality of service (QoS) field indicating QoS parameters for the data flow may be included in the data and ACK packets.
