Abstract-Two strategies for FDMA channel assignment in multi-channel ad hoc networks, where transmissions occur over a maximum distance rmax, are compared: local transmit channel and local receive channel FDMA orthogonalization. While transmit scheduling yields higher gains, it also requires a contention resolution mechanism on the MAC layer. Receive scheduling does not necessarily require contention resolution, but performs worse in the relevant low outage regime.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
