Resolving the Connectivity-Throughput Trade-Off in Random Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The discrepancy between the upper bound on throughput scaling in wireless networks and the throughput scaling in random networks is due to the connectivity-throughput trade-off. In this paper, nodes know their location and employ power control. The expected throughput-progress is analyzed for a nearest neighbor forwarding strategy, which benefits from power control by reducing spatial contention. By this, the connectivity-throughput trade-off is resolved and the upper bound is achieved. A lot of effort has been made to analyze the capacity of wireless networks within the last decade.
