The size of the carrier sensing range has a great impact on the network performance. Previous studies have focus on computing asymptotic optimum carrier sensing range using unrealistic interference models. In this paper, based on realistic interference model, the authors propose a framework to determine the optimum carrier sensing range of a network. By regarding the given network and the settings as input and modeling the interferences in wireless networks using Transmission Relation Graph (TRG), their framework can compute a precise optimum carrier sensing range for the given network.
