Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We derive upper bounds on the transport capacity of wireless networks. The bounds obtained are solely dependent on the geographic locations and power constraints of the nodes. As a result of this derivation, we are able to conclude the optimality, in the sense of scaling of transport capacity with the number of nodes, of a multihop communication strategy for a class of network topologies.
