Stability - Throughput Tradeoff and Routing in Multi-Hop Wireless Ad Hoc Networks
Source: Reed Elsevier
The authors study the throughput of multi-hop routes and stability of forwarding queues in a wireless ad-hoc network with random access channel. They focus on a wireless network with static nodes, such as community wireless networks. Their main result is characterization of stability condition and the end-to-end throughput using the balance rate. They also investigate the impact of routing on end-to-end throughput and stability of intermediate nodes. Numerical results are given and support the results of the analysis. Finally, they perform extensive simulation and verify that the analytical results closely match the results obtained from simulations.
