An Evaluation of Segregate Networks Compared to GRID Technology
Source: University of Portsmouth
In this paper, the authors focus on ad-hoc networks, deployed in a mesh network topology utilising multi-channel technology. The target is to investigate the performance of the location-aware channel assignment protocol named GRID compared to a segregated multi-channel mesh network. The term segregated means that the network is divided into smaller areas/teams and each one operates only one radio. Each node is assigned one radio frequency, but each segregate part has been assigned a different radio from the others. Both networks have been assigned with the same number of channels and used as a variable the number of the nodes within the simulated area.
