Title: METHOD OF CONTROLLING DATA TRANSMISSION IN A WIRELESS MESH NETWORK AND NODE THEREOF
Abstract:
There is provided a method of controlling data transmission in a wireless mesh network including a plurality of nodes capable of transmitting and receiving data packets. The method includes providing a frame comprising a plurality of time slots for data transmission, classifying the plurality of time slots into a plurality of sets of time slots, and determining, at a node of the plurality of nodes, a set of time slots amongst the plurality of sets of time slots for the node to transmit data packets, the set of time slots being determined based on a hop count associated with the node. There is also provided corresponding node(s) in a wireless mesh network configured to perform data transmission in the above manner.
