Abstract

In a multi-channel multi-radio (MCMR) wireless
network, each user is equipped with multiple transceivers (radios)
that can be used simultaneously. Each radio is dynamically tuned to a
given carrier frequency with fixed bandwidth, allowing a user to
choose from a fixed number of orthogonal channels. Extensive efforts
have been devoted to propose efficient channel assignment protocols.
One of these protocols is the link layer protocol that is designed to
utilize multi-channels multi-radio. The proposed protocol enhances
the throughput performance over the protocol that uses a single
channel on all hops; however self interference along the route still
exists. In this work we use adaptive transmission power management
to overcome the self interference. Adaptive transmission power
management allows multiple interference-limited concurrent
transmissions. Reducing the interference would improve the
throughput performance of the network. We use network simulator 2
(NS2) to verify our theoretical expectation, which shows a significant
increase in the network’s throughput.
