Queueing Model and Optimization of Packet Dropping in Real-Time Wireless Sensor Networks

The authors consider the problem of modeling the transmission of real-time data from a single node of a wireless sensor network to the next hop or access point. Generated packets are placed in a single position buffer and are transmitted over the wireless medium to the next hop, or they are discarded and replaced when a new data packet is generated from the sensor. To increase the percentage of packets delivered on-time to the next hop, they introduce a thresholding policy that is supported by an analytical model and it is responsible for deciding whether to transmit a data packet or drop it and transmit the next one.
