On the Optimal Transmission Range in Multi-Hop Wireless Ad Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In wireless ad hoc networks with randomly distributed nodes, the authors measure the normalized optimum transmission range and the network throughput, which is inversely proportional to the minimized number of transmissions required to reach the destination over multi-hop path, of various medium access schemes. Their objective is to determine the optimum transmission range that achieves the most optimal tradeoff between the progress of packets in desired directions towards their respective destinations and the number of transmissions required to deliver the packets.
