Analytical Model for Broadcast Packet Reception Rates in Two-Dimensional MANETs
In this paper, an analytic model is developed to derive a closed form broadcast packet reception rates in IEEE 802.11 based Two-Dimensional (2-D) Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs), which is the extension of 1-D MANET analytical model. The analytic model employs two straight parallel line geometry, IEEE 802.11 backoff counter process, hidden terminal problem, message arrival interval, and fading transmission channel. The proposed analytic model can be applied to Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) established along a highway. From the obtained numerical results, the new model is validated and new observations are obtained.
