Connectivity, as an important property of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), was studied by many previous researchers using the geometric disk model which rests on the switched link model. Basically, shadowing and fading have so heavy impact on links that there are many unreliable links in WSNs. In this paper, we quantify the effect of the long but unreliable hops on the connectivity of WSNs. In our model, each node connects to another node in the network with a certain probability at a given… CONTINUE READING
