Current trends in applications, services and socializing increase demands for network infrastructures, capable of supporting real-time traffic and Quality of Service (QoS). In this work, we aim at improving the inherently stringent wireless multi-hop network structure, based on the notion of inverse Topology Control (iTC). Taking into account socially-induced network churn operations, we focus on infusing social features in wireless multi-hop topologies and thus improving performance at higher protocol layers. We employ analysis and simulation to describe the complete iTC-based network churn mechanisms that resemble social churn and quantitatively study performance benefits at higher protocol layers of wireless multi-hop networks. Embracing such top-down approach for transferring social features at the network layer gives rise to meaningful and desired performance improvements.
