Title: On Channel Allocation of Directional Wireless Networks Using Multiple Channels
Author(s): Hong-Ning Dai, Hao Wang, Hong Xiao
Reference: pp43-48
Keywords: Directional Communications; Wireless Networks; Multiple Channels
Abstract: This paper investigates the channel allocation problem in multi-channel wireless networks with directional antennas. In particular, we propose a general analytical framework on the number of channels, in which we consider a new directional antenna model. This antenna model is more general than existing antenna models since other existing antenna models can be regarded as a special case of our model. Besides, it can accurately depict directional antenna with consideration of side-lobes and back-lobes. Moreover, we derive the upper bounds on the number of channels of such networks to ensure collision-free communications. Our results are also insightful to the network design and network deployment.
