An evaluation of a uniform multi channel network versus a segregate multi channel network

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper we are focusing on Ad-Hoc networks, deployed in a mesh network topology utilising multi-channel technology. The target is to investigate the performance of uniform multi-channel compared to segregated multi-channel mesh network. The term segregated means that the network is divided into smaller areas/teams and each one operates only one radio. Each node is assigned one radio frequency but each segregate part has been assigned a different radio from the others. We deployed different amount of channels in both the multi-channel and the segregated networks and this was from 2 channels up to 4 channels in the larger networks. As we have seen from the results, we have managed to keep the average delay of the whole network low and sometimes lower than the delay in the uniform multi-channel network. The effect of single channel interference has been minimised as each segregate network consisted of the least number of static nodes possible.
