The communication links of multi-hop wireless networks are less efficient than those of traditional wired networks. For example, collision-free data transmission is difficult to achieve in a wireless network. This work introduces a smart algorithm that enhances multiple communication channels in a wireless network. This study aims to implement the artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm to prevent data collisions. A thorough review is conducted to identify the drawbacks of a wireless network. The

The investigation reveals that, within a given range, the nodes of a wireless network cannot transmit signals simultaneously because the transmission from multiple nodes interferes with one another. Unwanted communication is also difficult to detect because of the presence of hidden and exposed nodes. Free transmission by network stations may lead to message collision. For example, if two communicating nodes are out of range, then a third node within the range may interfere with the communication. Results of this study show that the ABC algorithm enhances the communication channel in a wireless mesh network by preventing data collision during transmission. The implementation of the swarm intelligent algorithm provides a simple solution to the aforementioned deployment problems. Therefore, combining the general ABC algorithm and a ranking strategy in a packet radio network improves the communication among multiple nodes in rapid time
