Abstract: This paper studies the spatial capacity of wireless ad hoc networks. We propose a transmission scheme with threshold-based scheduling, where each transmitter decides to transmit in the data transmission phase if the signal-to-interference-ratio (SIR) at its receiver in the preceding pilot phase is no smaller than a predefined threshold. For comparison, we also consider a reference scheme, where all transmitters transmit independently in both the pilot and data transmission phases. For both schemes, we assume a homogeneous Poisson Point Process (PPP) to model the locations of transmitters that have the intention to transmit. However, for the proposed scheme, the point process formed by the retained transmitters in the data transmission phase is generally not a PPP due to the SIR-based scheduling. First, we show how to set the SIR threshold in the proposed scheme to assure that it outperforms the reference scheme in terms of network spatial capacity. Then, we present exact/approximate spatial capacity expressions for the proposed scheme with different SIR-threshold values. Finally, we provide simulation results to validate our analysis. © 2013 IEEE.
