Executive Summary

The authors study the impact of social connectivity on the capacity of wireless networks by considering different values of concentration factor and degree dispersion in scale-free networks. The result shows that a capacity similar to Gupta and Kumar is achieved. Further investigation reveals that traditional transport capacity definition provides misleading conclusions for such network models. They show that nodes with different social status impact the capacity differently. By separating nodes with different social status in frequency and allocating separate bandwidth to them, it is shown that majority of nodes scale in this network. The results imply that in a network with social and communication characteristics, social behavior of the nodes has significant influence on the performance of such networks
