The emergence of new-generation networking technologies and the wide-spread use of computers and wireless devices are providing opportunities for a new generation of powerful network systems. Recently, many researchers proposed several channel assignment (CA) algorithms in multi-radio multi-channel assignment (MR-MCA) wireless mesh networks (WMNs) to utilize available channels set in the network topology architecture. One of the key challenges faces MR-MCA is how to reduce the interferences to

The aim of this paper is to discuss the current channel assignment approaches in MR-MCA in wireless mesh networks and highlighting the state of the art for MR-MCA, which can help researchers and developers in the field of WMNs.
