HotNets 2008 2 Interference-limited networks Interference: Fundamental consequence of resource sharing Wireless LANs 3G, WiMax Mesh networks Increasingly interference-limited, not noise-limited

3
HotNets 2008 3 Interference: Friend or foe? Challenges: Interference is time-varying Bursty data traffic, not predictable voice traffic Radio propagation hard to model or predict Opportunity: Unlike noise, interference isnt random If strong enough, understand and cancel it Avoid or control internal interference So, treating interference as noise is inefficient

4
HotNets 2008 4 Goal: Improve aggregate throughput Concurrent transmissions improve throughput More total received power But they also increase interference Eliminate interference, maintaining concurrency?

5
HotNets 2008 5 VWID: Variable WIDth channels Interferers in orthogonal channels Variable widths for heterogeneous SINRs and bursty demands

6
HotNets 2008 6 Key questions (and talk outline) How does VWID compare analytically to: TDMA? CSMA? How much improvement in practice?

7
HotNets 2008 7 Capacity of variable-width channels Multiple transmitters, one receiver Radios have a power limit Single antenna at a node Channel doesnt vary in frequency or time Restriction removed in implementation Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN)

HotNets 2008 10 TDMA throughput: VWID throughput: Improvement higher for smaller allocations, due to additional in vs. VWID vs. TDMA: Two-node case l o g 2 ( 1 + P ® N ) l o g 2 ( 1 + P N ) C 1 + C 2 2 ; C 1 = l o g 2 ( 1 + P 1 N ) ; C 2 = l o g 2 ( 1 + P 2 N ) ® > C 1 + C 2 2 l o g 2 ( 2 C 1 + 2 C 2 ¡ 1 ) VWID TDMA R1R1 R2R2 (bits/s/Hz) A B l o g 2 ( 1 + P 1 N ) VWID l o g 2 ( 1 + P 2 N )
