Coverage and Connectivity Analysis of ADHOC Networks in Presence of Channel Randomness

T. Shankar, Vurandala Kiran Kumar, Dr.S. Shanmugavel


This paper is to analyze the coverage and connectivity of Ad Hoc Networks and to enhance the connectivity of the network by using Rician Fading, for this to compute the node isolation probability and coverage with respect to shadowing and fading phenomena in an ad hoc network in the presence of channel randomness. The concentrate on Rayleigh fading and Rician fading for finding the node isolation probability and also MIMO (multiple input multiple output) technique was used to enhance network coverage and connectivity. Further this paper considering Lognormal Shadowing, Rayleigh Fading and Rician Fading to simulates the graphs between the node isolation probabilities versus node density.
