Performance-Aware Cross-Layer Design in Wireless Multihop Networks Via a Weighted Backpressure Approach

  title={Performance-Aware Cross-Layer Design in Wireless Multihop Networks Via a Weighted Backpressure Approach},
  author={Eleni Stai and Symeon Papavassiliou and John S. Baras},
  journal={IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking},
In this paper, we study, analyze, and evaluate a performance-aware cross-layer design approach for wireless multihop networks. Through network utility maximization (NUM) and weighted network graph modeling, a cross-layer algorithm for performing jointly routing, scheduling, and congestion control is introduced. The performance awareness is achieved by both the appropriate definition of the link weights for the corresponding application's requirements and the introduction of a weighted… CONTINUE READING
