In this paper, we derive a theoretical model to calculate the available bandwidth of a path and study its upper and lower bounds with background traffic. We show that the clique constraint widely used to construct upper bounds does not hold any more when links are allowed to use different rates at different time. In our proposed model, traditional clique is coupled with rate vector to more properly characterize the conflicting relationships among links in wireless sensor networks where time… CONTINUE READING
