Abstract

The development of robust, survivable wireless access networks requires that the performance of network architectures and protocols be studied under normal as well as abnormal operating conditions. The work presented herein has two thrusts. One, we propose the use of overlapping coverage areas and adaptive load-sharing channel allocation schemes as a means to increase mobile network survivability by providing multi-homing at the radio channel level. Two, we describe our simulation approach to survivability analysis. Our simulation environment models realistic teletrafic generated from nonuniform service areas. We model abnormal modes due to network failure or due to teletrafic hot-spots. We use our simulation approach to compare the survivability of our load-sharing protocols to the commonly referenced directed retry protocol.
