Abstract

Queueing of packets in a mobile slotted ALOHA network with Rayleigh fading, shadowing, and UHF groundwave propagation is studied, using a finite Markov chain model. Receiver capture, assisted by all three propagation mechanisms, reduces bistability of the network substantially, compared to wired networks: the stability of mobile networks is less sensitive to the retransmission strategy. The near-far effect is highlighted, since the total network performance and the spatial distribution of the attempted traffic interact.
