Typically, a device in an ad hoc wireless network has a tunable radio allowing it to listen or transmit on one channel at a time. To ensure maximum connectivity, all devices tune their radio to the same channel. However, as node density increases, the interference worsens; resulting in lower throughput per device. Some of the interference is unnecessary. Modern radios can switch channels rapidly (i.e., tune to different frequencies quickly). Given multiple available channels, devices in a… CONTINUE READING
