Distributed Opportunistic Scheduling for Ad-Hoc Communications Under Delay Constraints

Free registration required

Executive Summary

With the convergence of multimedia applications and wireless communications, there is an urgent need for developing new scheduling algorithms to support real-time traffic with stringent delay requirements. However, distributed scheduling under delay constraints is not well understood and remains an under-explored area. A main goal of this study is to take some steps in this direction and explore the Distributed Opportunistic Scheduling (DOS) with delay constraints. Consider a network with M links which contend for the channel using random access. Distributed scheduling in such a network requires joint channel probing and distributed scheduling.
