Wireless Backhaul Networks, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.11a, MIMO-OFDM, IPT Forwarding
Wireless backhaul has received much attention as an enabler of future broadband mobile communication systems because it can reduce deployment cost of pico-cells, an essential part of high capacity system. A high throughput with a minimum delay network is highly appreciated to sustain the increasing proliferation in multimedia transmissions. In this paper, we propose a backhaul network using the Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) IEEE 802.11n standard in conjunction with the Dual Channel Intermittent Periodic Transmit IPT (DCH-IPT) packets forwarding protocol. By using these two techniques (IEEE 802.11n + DCH-IPT), wireless backhaul nodes can meet more demanding communication requirements such as higher throughput, lower average delay, and lower packet dropping rate than those achieved by the currently used backhaul. The current backhaul is based upon Single-Input Single-Output (SISO) IEEE 802.11a,b,g standards in conjunction with Single Channel Conventional (SCH-Conv) relaying protocol in which packets are transmitted continuously from source nodes using single channel. The proposed backhaul will accelerate introduction of picocell based mobile communication systems.
