Delay-Throughput Analysis in Distributed Wireless Networks
MetadataShow full item record
A primary challenge in wireless networks is to use available resources efficiently so that the Quality of Service (QoS) is satisfied while maximizing the throughput of the network. Among different resource allocation strategies, power and spectrum allocations have long been regarded as efficient tools to mitigate interference and improve the throughput of the network. Also, achieving a low transmission delay is an important QoS requirement in buffer-limited networks, particularly for users with real-time services. For these networks, too much delay results in dropping some packets. Therefore, the main challenge in networks with real-time services is to utilize an efficient power allocation scheme so that the delay is minimized while achieving a high throughput. This dissertation deals with these problems in distributed wireless networks.
