Predictable performance optimization for wireless networks

  title={Predictable performance optimization for wireless networks},
  author={Yi Li and Lili Qiu and Yin Zhang and Ratul Mahajan and Eric Rozner},
We present a novel approach to optimize the performance of IEEE 802.11-based multi-hop wireless networks. A unique feature of our approach is that it enables an accurate prediction of the resulting throughput of individual flows. At its heart lies a simple yet model of the network that captures interference, traffic, and MAC-induced dependencies. Unless properly accounted for, these dependencies lead to unpredictable behaviors. For instance, we show that even a simple network of two links with… CONTINUE READING
