Wireless Communication in Random Geometric Topologies
The present paper deals with communication in random geometric topologies; in particular, we model modern wireless ad hoc networks by random geometric topologies. The paper has two goals: the first is to implement the network power control mechanism extended by several wireless engineering features and to use the model to assess communicational properties of two typical random geometric topologies known from the literature in real-life conditions. The second goal is to suggest a modification of the “LowDegree” algorithm (one of the two studied topologies), which preserves excellent power requirements of the model, but matches the performance of the standard “UnitDisk” algorithm in terms of higher total network throughput.
