Abstract: Even though many solutions for WMNs to recover from wireless link failures have been proposed, they still have several limitations as follows. First, resource-allocation algorithms can provide (theoretical) guidelines for initial network resource planning. However, even though their approach provides a comprehensive and optimal network configuration plan, they often require global configuration changes which are undesirable in case of frequent local link failures. To overcome the above limitations, researchers propose an Autarchic Load Sharing System (ALSS) that allows a autarchic load sharing which allows reconfigure its local network settings assignment for real-time recovery from link failures. In its core, ALSS is equipped with a reconfiguration planning algorithm that identifies local configuration changes for the recovery while minimizing changes of healthy settings.
