Traditional routing protocols designed for multi-hop wireless networks select a route with the smallest hop count. The end-to-end throughput in the route may not be the maximum when network has multiple link data rates, as a small hop number implies a large geographic distance (link distance) for each hop. Due to the radio signal attenuation, this results in a low SNR at the receiving node and consequently a low available link data rate. Reducing the link distance by using routes with more hop… CONTINUE READING
