    In the third-generation (and beyond) wireless communication systems, there will be a mixture of different traffic classes, each having its own transmission rate characteristics and quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. In this paper, a QoS-oriented medium access control (MAC) protocol with fair packet loss sharing (FPLS) scheduling is proposed for wireless code-division multiple access (CDMA) com...

    A recent class of approaches for enhancing the performance of cellular wireless data networks has focused on improving the underlying network model. It has been shown that using the peer-to-peer network model, a mode of communication typically seen in ad hoc wireless networks, can result in performance improvements such as increased data rate, reduced transmission power, better load balancing, and...

  • Analysis of adaptive bandwidth allocation in wireless networks with multilevel degradable quality of service

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):5 - 17

    A wireless/mobile network supporting multilevel quality of service (QoS) is considered. In such a network, users or applications can tolerate a certain degree of QoS degradation. Bandwidth allocation to users can, therefore, be adjusted dynamically according to the underlying network condition so as to increase bandwidth utilization and service provider's revenue. However, arbitrary QoS degradatio... View full abstract»

  • Hierarchical routing overhead in mobile ad hoc networks

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):46 - 56

    Hierarchical techniques have long been known to afford scalability in networks. By summarizing topology detail via a hierarchical map of the network topology, network nodes are able to conserve memory and link resources. Extensive analysis of the memory requirements of hierarchical routing was undertaken in the 1970s. However, there has been little published work that assesses analytically the com...

  • DESP: a distributed economics-based subcontracting protocol for computation distribution in power-aware mobile ad hoc networks

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):33 - 45
    Cited by:  Papers (8)

    In this paper, we present a new economics-based power-aware protocol, called the distributed economic subcontracting protocol (DESP) that dynamically distributes task computation among mobile devices in an ad hoc wireless network. Mobile computation devices may be energy buyers, contractors, or subcontractors. Tasks are transferred between devices via distributed bargaining and transactions. When ... View full abstract»

  • Self-coordinating localized fair queueing in wireless ad hoc networks

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):86 - 98

    Distributed fair queueing in a multihop, wireless ad hoc network is challenging for several reasons. First, the wireless channel is shared among multiple contending nodes in a spatial locality. Location-dependent channel contention complicates the fairness notion. Second, the sender of a flow does not have explicit information regarding the contending flows originated from other nodes. Fair queuei... View full abstract»

  • CLTC: a cluster-based topology control for ad hoc networks

    The topology of an ad hoc network has a significant impact on its performance in that a dense topology may induce high interference and low capacity, while a sparse topology is vulnerable to link failure and network partitioning. Topology control aims to maintain a topology that optimizes network performance while minimizing energy consumption. Existing topology control algorithms utilize either a... View full abstract»

  • Stationary distributions for the random waypoint mobility model

    In simulations of mobile ad hoc networks, the probability distribution governing the movement of the nodes typically varies over time and converges to a "steady-state" distribution, known in the probability literature as the stationary distribution. Some published simulation results ignore this initialization discrepancy. For those results that attempt to account for this discrepancy, the practice... View full abstract»
