Joint Distributed Rate Control and Resource Allocation in Multiradio Multichannel Multihop Wireless Networks With Network Coding
In this paper, the authors propose a joint distributed rate control algorithm and distributed resource allocation algorithm in multi-radio multichannel multi-hop wireless networks with network coding. Their formulation provides a method of finding active links from the source to the destination and utilizing the resources from the available ones in order to maximize the network utility. Distributed schemes are used to approximate the upper bound within the feasible solution region of the optimization problem. The performance evaluation results show that the proposed scheme can effectively exploits multiple radios and channels.
