Distributed opportunistic scheduling for ad-hoc communications: an optimal stopping approach
We consider distributed opportunistic scheduling (DOS) in wireless ad-hoc networks, where many links contend for the same channel using random access. In such networks, distributed opportunistic scheduling involves a process of joint channel probing and distributed scheduling. Due to channel fading, the link condition corresponding to a successful channel probing could be either good or poor. In the latter case, further channel probing, although at the cost of additional delay, may lead to better channel conditions and hence higher transmission rates. The desired tradeoff boils down to judiciously choosing the optimal stopping strategy for channel probing and the rate threshold. In this paper, we pursue a rigorous characterization of the optimal strategies from two perspectives, namely, a network-centric perspective and a user-centric perspective. We first consider DOS from a network-centric point of view, where links cooperate to maximize the overall network throughput. Using optimal...
