Whitepaper: Comparison Between Scheduling Models for Spatial Reuse TDMA

by FOIJan 01, 2008

Spatial reuse TDMA is a collision-free access scheme for ad hoc networks. The idea is to let spatially separated radio terminals reuse the same time slot when the resulting interferences are not too severe. Different methods exist for generating reuse schedules. One method uses full knowledge of the interference environment to generate schedules. Other methods use a more or less simple graph representation of the network, assuming limited knowledge of the interferences.
