In this paper, we present a model to analyze the performance of wireless ad hoc networks with smart antennas, i.e. directional antennas with adjustable transmission power. Our results show that smart antennas can improve the network performance by mitigating the effects of interference. We illustrate our model with the NFP (Nearest with Forward Progress) transmission strategy. Our analytical and simulation results show that, for ad hoc networks with smart antennas, NFP yields good throughput and remains stable as the node density varies.
