Network Slicing is one of the critical enablers for the upcoming 5G mobile networks. This approach allows the creation of different, separated virtual networks based on the same physical infrastructure. Wireless mesh networks are selforganizing and self-configuring, which qualifies them to supply larger areas with a communication infrastructure in a quick and less complicated way. As a result, there are different areas of application for the use of such networks, e.g. restoring communication infrastructure in a disaster area. One aspect of network slicing in wireless mesh networks is the determination of paths through the network. Optimising the path determination can lead to improvements of the overall network performance. This work is about the creation of a graph model of the wireless mesh network and the comparison between algorithms for finding the optimal path through that modelled network. It also looks at prior research and it’s limitations.
