Performance Optimization of Interference-Limited Multihop Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The performance of a multi-hop wireless network is typically affected by the interference caused by transmissions in the same network. In a statistical fading environment, the interference effects become harder to predict. Information sources in a multi-hop wireless network can improve throughput and delay performance of data streams by implementing interference-aware packet injection mechanisms. Forcing packets to wait at the head of queues and coordinating packet injections among different sources enable effective control of co-packet interference. In this paper, throughput and delay performance in interference-limited multi-hop networks is analyzed.
