Delay-Aware Cross-Layer Design for Network Utility Maximization in Multi-Hop Networks

The authors investigate the problem of designing delay-aware joint flow control, routing, and scheduling algorithms in general multi-hop networks for maximizing network utilization. Since the end-to-end delay performance has a complex dependence on the high-order statistics of cross-layer algorithms, earlier optimization-based design methodologies that optimize the long term network utilization are not immediately well-suited for delay-aware design. This motivates them in this paper to develop a novel design framework and alternative methods that take advantage of several unexploited design choices in the routing and the scheduling strategy spaces.
