End-to-End Delay in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks With Generalized Transmission Range and Limited Packet Redundancy
Source: TOHOKU ELECTRIC POWER
One of the challenging roadblocks stunting the development and commercialization of Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), is the lack of a thorough understanding of the fundamental performance limits in MANETs. Distinguished from available works which mainly focused on deriving order sense scaling laws of the delay performance in MANETs and usually assumed a localized transmission range, this paper examines the MANET packet delay from a much more detailed perspective. Specifically, the authors assume for each node a general transmission power control such that the transmission range can be flexibly adapted and adopt a generalized two-hop relay with limited packet redundancy for packet routing.
