Evaluating Mobile Ad Hoc Networks: A Performance Index and Statistical Model

This paper is concerned with defining a performance index that can be used as an objective measure in the evaluation and comparison of ad hoc networking protocols. Specifically, the authors introduce a performance index that aggregates performance results from multiple response metrics into a single scalar value that quantifies overall system performance, leading to more objective evaluations and comparisons. Using a statistical-based experimental design and analysis strategy, they illustrate the advantages of the proposed performance index by comparing two ad hoc networking systems over a wide range of networking scenarios.
