DSMA: an access method for MIMO ad hoc networks based on distributed scheduling
In this work, we analyze the effects of a distributed transmission coordination scheme that is particularly suited for ad hoc networks with the ability to exploit spatially–multiplexed communications over MIMO links. Following previous work where we discussed the performance of this kind of networks and deployed a fast yet reliable approximation for physical layer behavior, we now employ this knowledge to analyze the performance of a different access scheme, meant to outperform previous results by the use of distributed coordination of transmissions and receptions without adding any further redundancy in communications. Furthermore, we analyze the effect of tuning two parameters on the overall network performance.
