Abstract

In this paper, based on the concept of ceased areas, the spatial reuse in IEEE 802.11 ad hoc networks is enhanced by transmission power control (TPC). A ceased area is created by a transmitter-receiver pair where all other nodes should cease their transmissions for a while. The size of a ceased area varies with the transmission power. A new TPC scheme that can minimize the induced ceased area is proposed. It is practical without needs to know the transmitter-receiver distance. And its performance in network throughput is superior to previous TPC schemes.
