J.-M. Dricot, P. De Doncker, E. Zimányi, and F. Grenez. Impact of the physical layer on the performance of indoor wireless networks. In Proceedings of the International Conference on Software, Telecommunications and Computer Networks, Split, Croatia, October 2003.

Abstract

In most studies on mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) simulation models are used for the evaluation of devices and protocols. Such simulations focus on the higher-layer protocols that are analyzed, and suppose that the other layers of the OSI model, particularly the physical layer models, do not interfer with the experimentation. In this paper, we present an innovative implementation of the physical layer for the NS-2 network simulator targeted at the performance analysis of indoor ad-hoc networks. It includes realistic signal reception, interference and noise computation, and effects of people moving indoor. However, as shown in this paper, neglecting the physical layer while modeling wireless indoor environments is error prone and should be considered more carefully.
