Characterisation of a Connectivity Measure for Sparse Wireless Multi-hop Networks
Sparse WMNs can support a significant extent of communication. This is specially true in the presence of mobility coupled with asynchronous communication. However, existing tools may not be sufficient for exploring the design of such networks. We presented a metric, reachability, its empirical characterization, and two tools for aiding the design of sparse WMNs. A detailed account of their use in facilitating tradeoffs for sparse WMN deployment can be found.
