On the Delay-Throughput Tradeoff in Distributed Wireless Networks
Source: University of Waterloo
As the demand for higher data rates increases, effective resource allocation emerges as the primary issue in wireless networks in order to satisfy Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Central to the study of resource allocation schemes, the distributed power control algorithms for maximizing the network throughput have attracted significant research attention. Also, achieving a low transmission delay is an important QoS requirement in buffer-limited networks. In particular, for backlogged users with real-time services (e.g., interactive games, live sport videos, etc), too much delay results in dropping some packets.
