Title:Topology Control for Maintaining Network Connectivity and Maximizing Network Capacity Under the Physical Model
Author(s):Gao, Yan; Hou, Jennifer C.; Nguyen, Hoang
Abstract:In this paper we study the issue of topology control under the physical Signal-to-Interference-Noise-Ratio (SINR) model, with the objective of maximizing network capacity. We show that existing graph-model-based topology control captures interference inadequately under the physical SINR model, and as a result, the interference in the topology thus induced is high and the network capacity attained is low. Towards bridging this gap, we propose a centralized approach, called Spatial Reuse Maximizer (MaxSR), that combines a power control algorithm T4P with a topology control algorithm P4T. T4P optimizes the assignment of transmit power given a fixed topology, where by optimality we mean that the transmit power is so assigned that it minimizes the average interference degree (defined as the number of interferencing nodes that may interfere with the on-going transmission on a link) in the topology. P4T, on the other hand, constructs, based on the power assignment made in T4P, a new topology by deriving a spanning tree that gives the minimal interference degree. By alternately invoking the two algorithms, the power assignment quickly converges to an operational point that maximizes the network capacity. We formally prove the convergence of MaxSR. We also show via simulation that the topology induced by MaxSR outperforms that derived from existing topology control algorithms by 50%-110% in terms of maximizing the network capacity.
