Optimizing Local Capacity of Wireless Ad Hoc Networks

In this paper, the authors evaluate local capacity of wireless ad hoc networks with several medium access protocols and identify the most optimal protocol. They define local capacity as the average information rate received by a receiver randomly located in the network. They analyzed grid pattern protocols where simultaneous transmitters are positioned in a regular grid pattern, pure ALOHA protocols where simultaneous transmitters are dispatched according to a uniform Poisson distribution and exclusion protocols where simultaneous transmitters are dispatched according to an exclusion rule such as node coloring and carrier sense protocols.
