Throughput Vs. Distance Tradeoffs and Deployment Considerations for a Multi-Hop IEEE 802.16e Railroad Test Bed
Throughput vs. distance analysis and coverage requirements is critical issues in planning wireless network deployments. With the recent availability of IEEE 802.16e and its promise of larger coverage areas for high-speed data communication, evaluating it in a real-world environment is very important to one in the authors' ongoing study of standards based wireless technologies for the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA). In this paper, they present results obtained with their IEEE 802.16e module for NS-2, particularly throughput vs. distance performance, and its consideration for designing a real-world multi-hop IEEE 802.16e testbed.
