The limits of theory: Pragmatic challenges in mobile ad hoc systems
—The development of mobile ad hoc systems have considerably emphasized the need for a better understanding of the factors that influence the systems’ performance, i.e., mobility patterns, radio propagation, traffic characteristics and their interrelations. Depending on the context where the system is being used—whether at work, at home, or in some means of transportation—there will be various applications that provide benefit of using the system. These different applications in turn generate traffic with very heterogeneous characteristics. In addition, the radio propagation depends on the surrounding environment and the density of communicating nodes in the system and in other systems that compete for radio resources; hence the available data rates in the system are hard to ascertain. The uncertainty regarding both the traffic and the available data rates make it hard to evaluate the performance of the system. This uncertainty is due to the lack of deployed systems. We hen...
