This paper investigates backbone wireless mesh networks using directional antenna systems. A heuristic design algorithm is proposed to construct a low interference network configuration with high connectivity and high link bit rate under multiple constraints including limited number of antennas at each node, transmission range constraint, and an angular separation constraint. Improved network performance is shown through simulations.
