Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are an emerging technology that could revolutionize the way wireless network access is provided. The interconnection of access points using wireless links exhibits great potential in addressing the "last mile" connectivity issue. To realize this vision, it is imperative to provide efficient resource management. Resource management encompasses a number of different issues, including routing. Although a profusion of routing mechanisms has been proposed for other wireless networks, the unique characteristics of WMNs (e.g. wireless backbone) prevent their straight forth application to WMNs. To have a clear and precise focus on future research in WMN routing, we first describe the characteristics of WMNs that have a high impact on routing. Then we define a set of criteria against which the existing routing protocols from ad hoc, sensor, and WMNs can be evaluated and performance metrics identified. This can serve as the basis for deriving the key design features for routing in wireless mesh networks. This paper could help to guide and refocus future works in this area.
