In this paper, a simulation model for IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) wireless mesh networks with distributed scheduling is developed. It provides a framework for the evaluation of reservation-based distributed scheduling (RBDS) policies at the medium access control (MAC) layer. The simulation model, called WiMAX-RBDS-Sim, is developed under the OPNET event-driven(More)
—Several distributed scheduling policies for wireless networks that achieve a provable efficiency ratio have been developed recently. These policies are characterized by the selection, at the onset of every time slot, of a subset of links according to the interference model of the network and the length of the links' queues. The selected subset of links is(More)
A major challenge in wireless networks is the ability to maximize the throughput. High throughput in a wireless network requires a relatively low complex scheduling policy with a provable efficiency ratio, which is a measure of the performance of the policy in terms of throughput and stability. For most scheduling policies that achieve provable ratios, at(More)
—A constructivist simulation-based methodology for teaching mobile communication systems in the electrical engineering curriculum is reported. In this methodology, senior undergraduate students develop simulators under the guidance of an advisor, and the simulators are later used by other students to learn these particular technologies. Evaluations based on(More)
—In this paper, we study the problem of transmission power control and its effects on the link-scheduling performance when a set of end-to-end flows established in the network are given. This problem is approached by means of the stability region of the link-scheduling policy. The stability region is defined for link-scheduling policies as the set of(More)
Transmission power control in multihop wireless networks is a challenging problem due to the effects that different node transmission powers have across the layers of the protocol stack. In this paper, we study the problem of transmission power control in IEEE 802.16 mesh networks with distributed scheduling. We consider the effects of transmission power(More)
In this paper, a game-theoretical framework for the design of distributed algorithms that control the transmission range (TR) of nodes in order to maximize throughput in Wireless Multihop Networks (WMN) is proposed. It is based on the stability region of the link-scheduling policy adopted for the network. The stability region is defined as the set of(More)
