Transmission capacity of wireless ad hoc networks with outage constraints
TLDR
In this paper, upper and lower bounds on the transmission capacity of spread-spectrum (SS) wireless ad hoc networks, which incorporate traditional modulation types (no spreading) as a special case, are derived. Expand

Service capacity of peer to peer networks
TLDR
We study the 'service capacity' of peer to peer (P2P) file sharing applications in steady state and show how the average delay seen by peers would scale in the offered load. Expand

Distributed $\alpha$ -Optimal User Association and Cell Load Balancing in Wireless Networks
TLDR
In this paper, we develop a framework for user association in infrastructure-based wireless networks, specifically focused on flow-level cell load balancing under spatially inhomogeneous traffic distributions. Expand

Transmission Capacity of Wireless Ad Hoc Networks With Successive Interference Cancellation
TLDR
We study the improvement in TC obtainable with successive interference cancellation (SIC), an important receiver technique that has been shown to achieve the capacity of several classes of multiuser channels, but has not been carefully evaluated in the context of ad hoc wireless networks. Expand

Performance of peer-to-peer networks: Service capacity and role of resource sharing policies
TLDR
In this paper we model and study the performance of peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing systems in terms of their 'service capacity'. Expand

Fairness, incentives and performance in peer-to-peer networks
In this paper we consider the sensitivity of the ‘service capacity’ of peer to peer (P2P) file sharing applications to demands, user cooperation, and providing incentives for cooperation throughExpand

Inducing spatial clustering in MAC contention for spread spectrum ad hoc networks
TLDR
This paper proposes a new principle for designing MAC protocols for spread spectrum based ad hoc networks -- inducing spatial clustering in contending transmitters/receivers to achieve even better spatial reuse. Expand

Advanced handover schemes in IMT-advanced systems [WiMAX/LTE Update]
TLDR
Handover is one of the key components in cellular network mobility management and has the most stringent latency requirement on service interruption time since the end-user experience is majorly determined by it. Expand
