In this work a cross-layer optimization in centralized Wireless Mesh Networks equipped with multiple antennas is introduced. A scenario has been considered in which multiple antennas at each node are employed to suppress the interference through beam-forming. By integrating different constraints from MAC and Network layers, a mathematical LP formulation is(More)
We investigate the achievable performance gain that network coding (NC) when combined with successive interference cancellation (SIC) brings to a multihop wireless network. While SIC enables concurrent receptions from multiple transmitters, NC reduces the transmission time-slot overhead, and each of these techniques has shown independently great benefits in(More)
We present a cross-layer optimization framework for wireless mesh networks; we assume nodes are equipped with smart antenna and techniques such as beam-forming, spatial division multiple access and spatial division multiplexing are considered. These techniques provide interference suppression, capability to communicate with several nodes simultaneously and(More)
Water-insoluble β-cyclodextrin polymer was synthesized by chemical cross-linking using epichlorohydrin (EPI) as a cross-linker agent. The produced water-insoluble polymer was used as a sorbent for the micro-solid phase extraction (μ-SPE) of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes (BTEX) from water samples. The μ-SPE device consisted of a sealed tea bag(More)
In this paper, we study the performance of multi-hop wireless networks when both proper interference control and effective spatial reuse are jointly considered. For the former, we assume nodes endowed with Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) capabilities at the physical layer and for the latter, we advocate joint link scheduling and power allocation.(More)
