—Wireless communications using ad hoc networks are receiving an increasing interest. The most attractive feature of ad hoc networks is the flexibility. The network is set up by a number of units in an ad hoc manner, without the need of any fixed infrastructure. Communication links are established between two units if the signal strength is sufficiently… (More)
System-centric modeling and analysis are of key significance in planning and optimizing cellular networks. In this paper, we provide a mathematical analysis of performance modeling for LTE networks. The system model characterizes the coupling relation between the cell load factors, taking into account non-uniform traffic demand and interference between the… (More)
An ad hoc network can be set up by a number of units without the need of any permanent infrastructure. Two units establish a communication link, if the channel quality is sufficiently high. As not all pairs of units can establish direct links, the traffic between two units may have to be relayed through other units. This is known as the multi-hop… (More)
We consider a wireless network comprising a number of mutually-interfering links. We study the transmit power control problem that determines the egalitarian signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio under a novel setup. Namely, we assume that the receivers have multiuser detection capability, which enables decoding and cancellation of the interference, when… (More)
—We consider the problem of minimization of sum transmission energy in cellular networks where coupling occurs between cells due to mutual interference. The coupling relation is characterized by the signal-to-interference-and-noise-ratio (SINR) coupling model. Both cell load and transmission power, where cell load measures the average level of resource… (More)
The Broadcast Incremental Power (BIP) algorithm is the most frequently cited method for the minimum energy broadcast routing problem. A recent survey concluded that BIP has O(|V | 3) time complexity, and that its approximation ratio is at least 4.33. We strengthen these results to O(|A|+|V | log |V |) and 4.598, respectively.
The paper is devoted to modeling wireless mesh networks (WMN) through mixed-integer programming (MIP) formulations that allow to precisely characterize the link data rate capacity and transmission scheduling using the notion of time slots. Such MIP models are formulated for several cases of the modulation and coding schemes (MCS) assignment. We present a… (More)
A fundamental aspect in performance engineering of wireless networks is optimizing the set of links that can be concurrently activated to meet given signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR) thresholds. The solution of this combinatorial problem is the key element in scheduling and cross-layer resource management. Previous works on link activation… (More)
