Analysis of MIMO Networks with Performance Considerations
In wireless networks, designing the distributed scheduling algorithm to achieve the maximal throughput is a challenging problem because of the complex interference constraints among different links in networks. Maximal-Weight Scheduling (MWS) algorithm is also throughput-optimal, but it is difficult to implement in the distributed wireless networks. And to get the maximal throughput the authors use the distributed greedy protocol like IEEE 802.11, but they do not get the maximal throughput with these protocol. So here they implement the distributed CSMA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access) algorithm to get the maximal throughput.
