Keywords: wireless mesh networks (WMNs) | multicast routing | ant colony optimization.

Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are new emerging networks which are anticipated to resolve many limitations of ad-hoc networks, sensor networks and wireless local area networks and improve their performance. But still there are many unresolved research challenge in this area. In this paper we have proposed source-specific multicast protocol for wireless mesh network, which has many application in, multimedia, radio and TV multicasting and distance learning. We have used core-based approach to construct minimum cost tree (MCT) among member nodes and optimized this tree for multiple metrics by applying ant colony optimization metaphor.
