In this paper, the authors explore the performance gain that can be achieved at the network level by employing Successive Interference Cancelation (SIC) instead of treating interference as noise for random access Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) with multi-packet reception capabilities. More precisely, they explore both the throughput and the delay of a distributed flow allocation scheme aimed at maximizing average aggregate flow throughput while also providing bounded delay combined with SIC. Simulation results derived from three simple topologies show that the gain over treating interference as noise for this scheme can be up to 15% for an SINR threshold value equal to 0.5.
