This paper examines the performance of segregate networks with single and multiple channels. It compares the simulation results to the location-aware channel assignment protocol named GRID. The term segregated means that the network is divided into smaller domains and each one operates on different radios. Each node is assigned a predefine pool of radios, per segregate. The results show that the average delay of the segregate is comparable to GRID topology, in some instances. We also demonstrate that the effect of single channel interference has been minimised and the throughput of the network has been increased, far more when multiple channel allocations are deployed within the segregate. Segregate networks are more robust in harsh environments and provide better data reliability.
