New propagation techniques using Magnetic Induction (MI) waveguide solves the problems of traditional techniques in many challenged environments, such as underground, mines/tunnels, and oil reservoirs. However, deploying MI waveguides to connect the wireless nodes in such networks is challenging due to the high deployment cost, the complex shape of the communication range of the MI waveguides, and the significant impacts of the node failure and relay coil displacement. To date, the deployment problems in the MI-based networks have not been addressed.
