Medium access control in a network of ad hoc mobile nodes with heterogeneous power capabilities

  title={Medium access control in a network of ad hoc mobile nodes with heterogeneous power capabilities},
  author={Neeraj Poojary and Srikanth V. Krishnamurthy and Son K. Dao},
MAC layer protocolsfor wir elessadhocnetworks typically assumethat the network is homogeneouswith respectto the transmit power capability of individual nodesin the network. The IEEE 802.11MAC protocol hasbeenpopular for usein ad hoc networks. We investigatethe performanceof this protocolwhenit is usedin anetwork with nodesthat transmit at various power levels. We show that overall thr oughput is lower than the thr oughput of a network in which all nodestransmit at identical power levels. In… CONTINUE READING
