— We consider medium access control (MAC) protocols for mobile ad hoc networks that are designed for MAC layer broadcasts. For example, such protocols could be used to transmit traffic information among vehicles. We analyze the performance of two simple MAC protocols, when multiuser interference is explicitly modeled via the received signal-to-interference(More)
— We consider optimizing the packet-sizes and the re-use factor to minimize the delay required to send a message between two nodes in a linear multi-hop wireless network subject to a reliability constraint. Initially assuming no re-use, we give a bound on the required delay. Next, in a infinite system with re-use, we analyze the rate of growth of the delay(More)
— We consider optimizing packet sizes and the re-use factor to minimize the delay required to send a message between two nodes in a linear multi-hop wireless networks subject to a reliability constraint. In earlier work, this problem was considered for a network in which each node only decoded the transmission of the previous node, treating the(More)
