Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) provides multi-hop and multi-path communication by deploying network nodes in form of mesh topology and grasps the attention of research community and industry due to its features like self-healing and self-organizing etc. In multi-hop networks, bandwidth efficiency degrades with the increase in number of intermediate nodes. In this paper, we present a novel encoding scheme at data link layer with the characteristic of cut-through switch. By using the proposed technique, we can increase throughput by reducing re-transmissions in the network. We have verified our proposed method by simulation in NS3. The simulation results indicate that in-spite of high interference, we can achieve improved throughput and less delay with proposed model.
