ABSTRACT In this paper, we develop a performance modeling technique for analyzing the time varying network layer queueing behavior of multihop wireless networks with constant bit rate traffic. Our approach is a hybrid of fluid flow queueing modeling and a time varying connectivity matrix. Network queues are modeled using fluid-flow based differential equation models which are solved using numerical methods, while node mobility is modeled using deterministic or stochastic modeling of adjacency matrix elements. Numerical and simulation experiments show that the new approach can provide reasonably accurate results with significant improvements in the computation time compared to standard simulation tools.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we develop a performance modeling technique for analyzing the time varying network layer queuing behavior of multihop wireless networks with constant bit rate (CBR) traffic. Our approach is a hybrid of a time varying adjacency matrix and a fluid flow queuing network model. Mobile network topology is modeled using time varying adja- cency matrix, while node queues are modeled using fluid flow based differential equations which are solved using numerical methods. Numerical and simulation experiments show that this new approach can provide reasonably accurate results. Moreover, when compared to the computation time required in a standard discrete event simulator, the fluid flow based model is shown to be a more scalable tool. Finally, an illustrative example of our modeling technique application is given to show its capability of capturing the time varying network performance as a function of traffic load, node mobility and wireless link quality.

    ABSTRACT: IEEE 802.15.4 Low Rate Wireless Personal Area Network (LR-WPAN) intends to provide low-power ubiquitous communications between devices. However, energy utilization by devices (or nodes) in the network often impacts the application functionality and lifetime due to limited battery capacity. For instance, in the typical multihop LR-WPAN used for data detection and monitoring, the traffic flow often converges to the data sink and such a many-to-one pattern typically results in energy imbalance. Previous research has proposed many approaches to solve this issue. However, a common limitation is about using the idealized energy model, such as “first order radio model”, which is the idealized estimation for RF transmission energy cost of the node. In this paper, we develop a realistic and representative LR-WPAN RF transceiver energy model from the measured data on Chipcon CC2420 and corresponding power control policy. Further, with this energy model, we formulate an optimized energy balanced chain (OEBC) model to maximize the network lifetime. Finally, the OEBC model is applied to develop the network deployment strategy by optimizing node placement, node density and traffic flow distribution.

    ABSTRACT: In the area of performance analysis of wireless networks, one critical issue is the hidden terminal problem, which is considered as one of the severest reasons for the degradation of network performance. In this paper, we incorporate reactive jamming scheme with distributed coordination function (DCF) in IEEE 802.11 based wireless local area networks (WLANs) to improve network throughput in the presence of hidden terminals. In the proposed protocol, we schedule access point (AP) to broadcast jamming signal reactively to hinder the simultaneous transmission of hidden terminals. Both analytical and numerical results show that our reactive jamming based protocol can constantly improve WLAN throughput for a wide range of conditions, compared with the traditional RTS/CTS.
