An Overview of the Transmission Capacity of Wireless Networks

  title={An Overview of the Transmission Capacity of Wireless Networks},
  author={S. Weber and J. Andrews and N. Jindal},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Communications},
This paper surveys and unifies a number of recent contributions that have collectively developed a metric for decentralized wireless network analysis known as transmission capacity. Although it is notoriously difficult to derive general end-to-end capacity results for multi-terminal or adhoc networks, the transmission capacity (TC) framework allows for quantification of achievable single-hop rates by focusing on a simplified physical/MAC-layer model. By using stochastic geometry to quantify the… Expand
