Impact of Multi-Packet Transmission and Reception on the Throughput Capacity of Wireless Ad Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors study the capacity of random wireless ad hoc networks when nodes are capable of Multi-Packet Transmission and Reception (MPTR). This paper extends the unified framework of (n, m and k)-cast by Wang et al. for Single-Packet Reception (SPR) at each node to the case of MPTR. (n, m and k)- cast considers all types of information dissemination including unicast routing, multicast routing, broadcasting and any-casting. In this context, n, m, and k represent the total number of nodes in the network, the number of destinations for each communication group and the actual number of destinations that receive the packets, respectively.
