Connectivity in ad-hoc and hybrid networks

  title={Connectivity in ad-hoc and hybrid networks},
  author={Olivier Dousse and Patrick Thiran and Martin Hasler},
We consider a large-scale wireless network, but with a low density of nodes per unit area. Interferences are then less critical, contrary to connectivity. This paper studies the latter property for both a purely ad-hoc network and a hybrid network, where fixed base stations can be reached in multiple hops. We assume here that power constraints are modeled by a maximal distance above which two nodes are not (directly) connected. We find that the introduction of a sparse network of base stations… CONTINUE READING
