A user-based mobility management scheme for WMN’s namely, the static anchor scheme and dynamic anchor scheme. Both schemes are based can be extended to WMNs that have multiple gateways. In addition we plan to investigate the proposed schemes under more realistic mobility models the random walk model. The Random walk model is a random based mobility model used in mobility management schemes for mobile communication system. In random based mobility simulation models, the mobile nodes move randomly and freely without restrictions. In this paper we describe the design of a novel network based local mobility management scheme for wireless mesh networks. In further we use a scheme called ANT which is used to facilitate the easy deployment, particularly those of real time voice and video communications. A comparative analysis shows that our Random walk schemes outperform routing-based mobility management protocols for WMNs, especially for mobile Internet applications characterized by large traffic asymmetry for which the downlink packet arrival rate is much higher than the uplink packet arrival rate.
