WMNs are a very attractive field of research as they are low cost, easily deployed and high performance solution to last mile broadband Internet access. However they have to deal with a lack of bandwidth which prevents the deployment of applications with strict constraints (e.g. VoIP, streaming video, etc.). To overcome this limitation, we introduce a novel WMN model which integrates a bandwidth-based admission control scheme with an efficient transmission scheduling algorithm. The proposed admission control is based on an accurate new method to calculate link's bandwidth considering link's length and on a transmissions scheduling algorithm which favors parallel transmission, thus optimizing network's bandwidth.
