Towards commercial mobile ad hoc network applications: a radio dispatch system

By Elgan Huang, Wenjun Hu, Jon Crowcroft and Ian Wassell


Abstract – We propose a novel and plausibly realistic application scenario for mobile ad hoc networks in the form of a radio dispatch system. We evaluate the system from both financial and technical perspectives to gain a complete picture of its feasibility. Using a realistic mobility and propagation model drawn from real world data we investigate the effects of node density, connection times and traffic congestion on the network coverage. We discuss design considerations in the light of the results. These findings are not limited to this particular scenario but are applicable to any mobile ad hoc system operating in similar conditions. I
