Mobile Backbone Networks are heterogeneous wireless networks in which a subset of the nodes are more capable than others. The more capable nodes are referred to as Mobile Backbone Nodes (MBNs), whose primary role is to provide a mobile infrastructure in order to facilitate reliable end-to-end communication between nodes in the Network. In this paper, the authors consider the problem of optimally placing the MBNs over a finite time horizon. Specifically, they consider the path planning of a single MBN and aim to maximize the time-average system throughput.
