Impact of Multi-Packet Transmission and Reception on 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 Multi-Packet Transmission and Reception (MPTR). This paper extends the unified framework of (n, m and k)-cast by Wang et al. with Single-Packet Reception (SPR) capability for each node to 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 total number of nodes in the network, number of destinations for each communication group and actual number of destinations that receive the packets respectively.
