Title: Analytical Models of Short-Message Reliability in Mobile Wireless Networks

Abstract: Applications like Twitter which use chat-like short messaging systems (SMS) have been widely used in public, political, military, emergency, humanitarian and other fields. Such applications usually involve servers (controllers) which control and forward messages from a sending client to a receiving client. The use of mobile wireless networks for such messaging systems has been increasing at a fast pace. To cope with this increase, there need to be efficient communication protocols and algorithms. To design such protocols and algorithms requires extensive analysis and understanding of the behavior of the communicating nodes under a given mobility scenario. One of the good metrics to understand the performance of such protocols is the reliability of message delivery. In this paper we present analytical models of the average reliability of short (chat-like) message delivery in mobile wireless networks as a multivariate function of the transmission range, movement area dimensions, number of servers (base stations) and message deadline (lifetime) under moderate realistic assumptions which can be easily relaxed and extended. Simulation results show that our analytical models give very good estimation of the average reliability of message delivery.
