Purpose: Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are regarded as a milestone in developing next-generation wireless networks. The multi-hop architecture of WMN makes it very attractive. However, interoperability is an inherent problem for deploying a large-scale WMN, which may consist of various types of wireless networks. There are two intuitive approaches to solving the interoperability problem: the dual-stack/multi-stack approach and the naive layer-2 broadcast approach. While the former incurs high cost in all devices, the latter creates broadcast storm in the whole network. This paper aims to propose a cross-layer heterogeneous routing protocol for solving this problem without the adverse effects of the intuitive approaches. Design/methodology/approach: A conceptual discussion and approach are employed. Findings: The simulation results validate the efficiency of the proposed protocol. Originality/value: The paper provides details of a method for routing selection in WMNs.
