Wireless networks over the year have undergone huge technological advancements. Due to integration of all three types of services viz. voice, data, video, during improvement in wireless technologies, bandwidth has become the most crucial network resource that needs to be optimized for these bandwidth hungry services. In multihop scenarios (in WMNs), performance depends on the routing protocol to properly choose routes, given the current network conditions. To efficiently optimize these wireless networks, efficient routing and scheduling techniques needs to be incorporated to improve Quality of Service (QoS). Routing and scheduling techniques have been analyzed. Different techniques in various technologies are discussed to improve network performance.
