Even though the default routing protocol (i.e., HWMP) of WMNs supports multiple interface; it was typically designed for multi-home based protocols instead of multi- interface network [1].
As a default routing protocol, HWMP was suggested in IEEE 802.11 s.
The proactive component of HWMP works as the extension of proactive routing tree specially designed for MPs.
Some other open-ended issues include implementation of frame loss probability that may be required in HWMP Airtime Link path selection Metric (ALM), as the IEEE 802.11s draft does not highlight calculation of this probability.
Research [19] shows that HWMP is vulnerable to several routing attacks such as wormhole attacks, routing disruption attacks, flooding attacks, etc.
Proactive path setup modes: The HWMP specification considers two different approaches for proactive path setup towards root mesh stations: proactive Path Request (PREQ) mode and RANN mode.
