The transport capacity of wireless networks over fading channels Conference Paper uri icon


  • We study the transport capacity of wireless networks with fading, in the high attenuation regime where either the medium is absorptive or the path loss exponent is greater than 3. For a network of n nodes we show that even were the states of all channels to be non-causally known a-priori, the transport capacity is no more than O(n). On the other hand, even when the channels are frequency selective and independent from time to time, (n) is achievable through a multi-hop strategy.
