Channel Capacity and Second Order Statistics in Tactical Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
The channel capacity and the channel statistics are both important performance metrics to consider for appropriate design of wireless systems. In tactical mobile ad hoc networks environment, the capacity and the second order statistics are investigated based on an optimized physical layer simulation tool which includes tactical scenarios generator and propagation modeler. The possible link data rate is stemmed from the average channel capacity analysis between all pair of nodes. And based on the minimum data rate requirement for typical services (web, audio and video streaming, VoIP, videoconference), connectivity graphs are constructed.
