Abstract: "Integrated Packet/Flow Level Performance Modeling of Wireless Ad hoc Networks"

We propose, analyze and discuss analytical performance models for simple

wireless ad hoc network scenarios. The models capture the system

dynamics at both the packet and flow level. Particular focus is on

analyzing the impact of sharing common radio transmission resources

among different network 'links' on flow transfer times and packet

delays/buffer occupancies. Key words: WLAN, IEEE 802.11E, multi-hop ad hoc network, processor

sharing queueing model, fluid flow model, validation by simulation.
