In this letter, a minimum jitter probability (MJP) route selection algorithm for wireless mesh networks (WMNs) is proposed. To create the MJP algorithm, the inter-arrival packet jitter probability mass function (PMF) for differentiated service (DiffServ) priority classes is derived, which considers the effect of retransmissions due to packet errors in WMNs. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed MJP algorithm compared to the popular minimum hop (MH) and expected transmission count (ETX) WMN routing schemes.
