This paper develops a new expression for a network node capability value used to quantify the node's ability to maintain an optimal information flow in a mobile communication network. The capability value is adaptable and is a function of the bandwidth efficiency, the data rate, the energy-per-bit to noise spectral density power ratio and reflects how effectively the node can receive, process and transmit data. To evaluate the capability expression a generalized connectivity metric is used which integrates the node capability values along with their connections scaled by the length of the routes (including their directionality) in order to measure the maximum information exchange rate (characteristic tempo) of the network.
