Topology control by means of transmit power adjustment is a well studied technique for improving the network capacity and energy efficiency of wireless ad hoc networks. In this paper, we investigate the feasibility of connectivity and topology control in a real IEEE 802.11b testbed composed of inexpensive commercial of-the-shelf (COTS) routers. Although topology control via transmit power adjustment is feasible based on analytical studies and emulations, it is difficult in practice for the… CONTINUE READING
