  Load Balancing Technique to Improve Video Traffic in Wireless Networks  
  Authors : Deepthi Joseph; Dr. Gnana Sheela K
  Cite as:


This paper presents a load balancing technique to deliver the video data over the wireless networks. Wireless network are dynamic in nature .Due to this uneven distribution some node carry more traffic than the other and cause congestion. This congestion will drop the packet and reduces the overall network quality. It affects badly on the transmission of the data and cannot transmit the data efficiently. This reduce the quality of service .To overcome this problem the congested node are identified and data are rerouted to a newly selected path. By retransmission the packet drop can be minimized and improve the network quality.

Wireless Mesh Network



Load Balancing




This paper addresses the issues of the unbalanced traffic condition in the wireless networks. This unbalanced condition leads to the poor utilization of networks resources by overloading some mesh nodes. Due to this congestion packet are dropped and data cannot be delivered efficiently. This heavy packet loss lowers the user perceived quality and reduces the overall QoS. Using LBTC protocol we can overcome the issues like congestion and packet loss by identifying the congested node and rerouting the data to a newly selected node which offer less congestion. It improves the QOS of the network and balances the network traffic.
