A new cross-layer design taking advantage of OFDMA in ad hoc networks is presented. OFDMA technology is exploited at the physical layer to improve data rate through multiuser diversity and to enhance network throughput by enabling multiple concurrent transmissions over orthogonal subchannels, each consisting of a group of tones. A new tone-assignment algorithm is presented that takes advantage of channel fading and is adapted to the limitations of ad hoc networks and operates alongside the… CONTINUE READING
