Efficiency of Wireless Networks Under Different Hopping Strategies

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors investigate whether it is preferable to have a large number of short single-hop links or a small number of long single-hops in a multi-hop wireless network. They derive analytical expressions to compute the metric aggregate multi-hop information efficiency under different hopping strategies, and analyze the trade-off involving robustness of single-hop links, interference and hopping strategy. A key aspect of multi-hop wireless networks is their intrinsic ability to create links connecting source and destination nodes through multiple hops, allowing for communication between nodes that are out of range of each other.
