Abstract: In this paper, the authors propose a novel real-time study metrics of Round Trip Time (RTT) for Multi-Hop Wireless Mesh Networks. They focus on real operational wireless networks with fixed nodes, such as industrial wireless networks. The main aim of the metric is to show the effect of the Downlink and Uplink message size (DMS and UMS) on RTT with and without Forward Error Correction (FEC), user data size without any headers, on RTT path between a source (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) center) and a destination RTU (Remote Terminal Units). The metric assigns weights to links based on the RTT path of a packet size over the link path. They studied the performance of the metric by implementing it in three wireless scenarios consisting of 3, 4 and 5 nodes; each node represents a wireless radio IP router. They find that in a multi-hops environment, the real-time metric clearly shows the impact of DMS, UMS and FEC on RTT by making judicious use of the number of the hops.
