Abstract

In wireless network communication, in-band full-duplex technique is a useful and important technique that can enlarge the whole throughput of the wireless networks. However, its use needs harsh environment. The successive interference cancellation can make several transmitters’ data be received simultaneously by the receiver, and can make the in-band full-duplex technique be used easily in reality. In this paper, we try to propose an optimal algorithm for increasing the throughput of full-duplex multi-hop wireless networks with successive interference cancellation, which we call the full-duplex successive interference cancellation (FD-SIC) wireless networks. We first describe the mathematical model for the FD-SIC wireless networks and show it is NP-hard in general. Then, we propose a heuristic algorithm, namely the use-up-link-capacity iterative (UULC-iterative) algorithm, for each node’s routing and transmitting scheme. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm for FD-SIC wireless networks can achieve better throughput compared with SIC-only networks and the interference avoidance networks. View Full-Text
