(Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) is emerging network which is being widely used to handle most of the wireless internet access available in today’s world. WMN is a self sustaining network made up of numerous mesh routers which are deployed and are static in nature and the mobile clients/ mobile stations which are highly mobile nodes. The gateway is responsible for connecting the mobile stations with the internet. When the mobile station move from one network to the other, the handoff process needs to be carried out to maintain the connectivity of the mobile station with the internet network. The handoff process is usually degraded due to several factors like signalling packet transmission delay, channel contention, etc. In this paper, it is proposed to develop a Inter-Gateway Handoff Management Using Ant Colony Optimization (IGHMACO) for Wireless Mesh Networks. In this technique, the Ant agents are used to estimate utility function based on which the next access point is determined. The contention in channel is reduced by splitting the channel and the signalling packet transmission delay is reduced by storing the handoff history. In this way, the handoff process is performed effectively, in turn ensuring efficient network operation.
