Performance Analysis of an Opportunistic Relay Selection Protocol for Multi-Hop Networks

In this paper, the authors analyze the performance of an interference-aware opportunistic relay selection protocol for multi-hop line networks which is based on the following simple rule: a node always transmits if it has a packet, except when its successive node on the line is transmitting. They derive analytically the saturation throughput and the end-to-end delay for two and three hop networks, and present simulation results for higher numbers of hops. In the case of three hops, they determine the throughput-optimal relay positions.
