Optimal Transmission Schemes in Wireless Networks and Their Comparison With Simple ALOHA Based Scheme

The authors present their analysis and results that allow them to conjecture that maximum capacity in wireless networks can be achieved if nodes transmitting simultaneously are positioned in a hexagonal grid pattern. But obviously, it is very difficult to realize such a protocol which ensures that active transmitters in the network are positioned in any specific grid pattern. They compare the optimal capacity in networks with grid positioned transmitters with the capacity of wireless networks where nodes are dispatched according to uniform distribution and use very simple ALOHA-based protocol for channel access.
