The problem of transmission scheduling in single hop and multi-hop wireless networks has been extensively studied.

Abstract

The problem of transmission scheduling in single hop and multi-hop wireless networks has been extensively studied. The focus has been on optimizing the efficiency of transmission parallelization, through a minimum-length schedule that meets a given set of traffic demands using the smallest possible number of time slots. Each time slot is associated with a set of transmissions that are compatible with each other according to the considered interference model. The minimum-length approach maximizes the resource reuse, but it does not ensure minimum end-to-end packet delay for multiple source-destination pairs, due to its inherent assumption of frame periodicity. In the paper we study the problem of transmission scheduling and routing aiming at minimizing the end-to-end delay under the signal-to-interference-and-noise-ratio (SINR) model for multi-hop networks. Two schemes are investigated. The first scheme departs from the conventional scheduling approach, by addressing explicitly end-to-end delay and removing the restriction of frame periodicity. The second scheme extends the first one by featuring cooperative forwarding and forward interference cancellation. We study the properties of the two schemes, and propose novel mixed-integer programming models and solution algorithms. Extensive results are provided to gain insights on how the schemes perform in end-to-end delay.
