In this paper we focus on Ad-Hoc networks, deployed in a mesh network topology utilising multi-channel technology. Our target is to investigate the performance of the location-aware channel assignment protocol named GRID compared to a segregated multi-channel mesh network. The term segregated means that the network is divided into smaller areas/teams and each one operates only one radio. Each node is assigned one radio frequency but each segregate part has been
assigned a different radio from the others. Both networks have been assigned with the same number of channels and used as a variable the number of the nodes within the simulated area. As we have seen from the results, we have managed to keep the average delay of the whole network low and sometimes lower than the delay in the GRID topology. The effect of single channel interference has been minimised and the throughput of the network has been increased.
