Previous work on ad hoc network capacity has focused primarily on source-destination throughput requirements for different models and transmission scenarios, with an emphasis on delay tolerant applications. In such problems, network capacity enhancement is achieved as a tradeoff with transmission delay. In this paper, the capacity of ad hoc networks supporting delay sensitive traffic is studied. First, a general framework is . proposed for characterizing the interactions between the physical and the network layer in an ad hoc network. Then, CDMA ad hoc networks, in which advanced signal processing techniques such as multiuser detection are relied upon to enhance the user capacity, are analyzed. The network capacity is characterized using a combination of geometric arguments and large scale analysis, for several network scenarios employing matched filters, decorrelators and minimum-mean-square-error receivers. Insight into the network performance for finite systems is also provided by means of simulations. Both analysis and simulations show a significant network capacity gain for ad hoc networks employing multiuser detectors, compared with those using matched filter receivers, as well as very good performance even under tight delay and transmission power requirements
