Summary:
Channel assignment in multi-radio networks is a topic of great importance because the use of multiple channels and multiple radios reduces interference and increases the network throughput. The goal of our research is to design algorithms that maximize the use of available resources while providing robustness to primary users that could reclaim one or more channels. Our algorithms could be used in ad hoc networks, mesh networks, and sensor networks where nodes are equipped with multiple radios. We design algorithms for channel assignment which provide robustness to primary users without assuming an accurate primary user behavior model. We also compute bounds for capacity in grid networks and discuss how the capacity of a network changes when multiple channels are available. Since preserving energy is very important in wireless networks, we focus on algorithms that do not require powerful resources and which use a reduced number of messages.
