Introduction

In cellular and wireless local area networks, wireless communication only occurs on the last link between a base station and the wireless end system. In multihop wireless networks, there are one or more intermediate nodes along the path that receive and forward packets via wireless links. Multihop wireless networks have several benefits: Compared with networks with single wireless links, multihop wireless networks can extend the coverage of a network and improve connectivity. Moreover, transmission over multiple “short” links might require less transmission power and energy than that required over “long” links. Moreover, they enable higher data rates resulting in higher throughput and more efficient use of the wireless medium. Multihop wireless networks avoid wide deployment of cables and can be deployed in a cost-efficient way. In case of dense multihop networks, several paths might become available that can be used to increase robustness of the network.
