We consider the throughput/delay tradeoffs for scheduling data transmissions in a mobile ad-hoc network. To reduce delays in the network, each user sends redundant packet information along multiple paths to the destination. Such redundancy improves delay at the cost of increasing network congestion. Assuming the network has a cell partitioned structure and users move according to a simplified iid mobility model, we compute the exact network capacity and delay when no redundancy is used. The… CONTINUE READING
