Architecture and protocols in wireless networking Conference Paper uri icon


  • Due to the Maxwellian nature of the wireless medium, information can be transferred using methods quite different methods from wireline networking. For example, multiple transmissions can be simultaneously decoded at a receiver, and concurrent transmissions in the vicinity of a receiver need not destructively "collide." As another example, one can even use analog rather than digital methods for relaying. Given the infinitude of such options, a fundamental question that aries is: How should be information be transferred in wireless networks? This talk will address the issue of characterizing an order-optimal architecture. Interest subsequently devolves to the issue of how to boost performance pre-constants, and what may be appropriate protocols for such second generation protocols efforts. (Joint work with A.
