Despite years of research and development, pioneering deployments of multihop wireless networks have not proven successful. The performance of routing and transport is often unstable due to contention-induced packet losses, especially when the network is large and the offered load is high. In this paper, the authors propose RAIN, a reliable wireless network architecture for large-scale multihop wireless networks. A RAIN network enforces contention control by limiting the queue length at intermediate wireless routers to the minimum. To keep the queue short a RAIN network enforces congestion control through in-network implicit back-pressure.
