A new analytical model for multihop CSMA networks is presented, using matrix exponential methods that model node queueing and backoff processes. This model also captures in a new way the collisions between nodes and then provides performance analysis for not just throughput, but also packet dropping, end-to-end delay, and jitter. All performance metrics are shown to be very accurate compared to simulation results. The model is then used to propose methods for controlling performance of CSMA… 

Competition, cooperation, and optimization in Multi-Hop CSMA networks

A new method for the study of competition and cooperation relationships among nodes in a network with a CSMA (Carrier Sense Multiple Access) protocol implemented with an exponential backoff process is presented.

Research and simulation of transport protocols optimization on wireless multi-hop networks

Through extensive simulations of four transport protocols (TCP, SCTP, UDP and DCCP) in competition scenarios, the relationship between network performance and network factors is analyzed and the proposed optimization methods with proper values of factors are proposed.


MANET is defined as the moving node rather than any fixed infrastructure, act as a mobile router, which is responsible for the network mobility.

QoS in the Mobile Cloud Computing Environment

Misbehavior and MAC Friendliness in CSMA Networks

The misbehavior problem is addressed in this paper by proposing the use of continuous- time protocols instead of slotted-time protocols, and the flexibility problem is address by introducing the concept of "MAC friendliness" where nodes can adjust arrival and backoff rates while maintaining a fixed share of the channel.
