Encouraging Cooperative Interaction among Network Entities [chapter]

Sonja Buchegger, John Chuang
2007 Cognitive Wireless Networks  
The research on cooperation in networks has focused on types of networks that depend on cooperation among the nodes just to enable communication at all: in self-organized networks such as peer-to-peer  ...  from the distributed and transient nature of non-fixed networks.  ...  In a theoretical analysis of how much cooperation mechanisms can help by increasing the probability of a successful forward in a wireless multi-hop network, Lamparter, Plaggemeier, and Westhoff [24]  ...

Socially-motivated Wireless Neighborhood Communities

Panayotis Antoniadis, Benedicte Le Grand, Marcelo Dias de Amorim
2008 2008 Third International Conference on Communications and Networking in China  
In this paper, we promote the use of online communities as a means to provide incentives for people to collaborate in building wireless community networks.  ...  On the one hand, in addition to the standard activities of an online neighborhood community (e.g. i-neighbors), a WNC's members cooperate to build a network and share their resources at different layers  ...  Clearly, economic approaches belong to the category of extrinsic, "controlling", incentive mechanisms, and this is one of the reasons why they might not be the most effective solution in our context.  ...

An auction algorithm for procuring wireless channel in a heterogenous wireless network

N.R. Suri, Y. Narahari
2006 2006 IFIP International Conference on Wireless and Optical Communications Networks  
We assume that the service providers of the heterogeneous wireless network are selfish and non-cooperative in the sense that they are interested in maximizing their own utilities.  ...  The wireless user is in need of procuring wireless channel to execute multiple jobs. To solve the problem of wireless user, we propose a reverse optimal (REVOPT) auction.  ...  In both algorithms, each node selects a set of neighbors based on the locally collected information.  ...

2008 IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications  
In this paper, we study the fairness problem in multi-hop wireless backhaul networks in the presence of selfish Transit Access Points (TAPs).  ...  We design an incentive-based mechanism which encourages TAPs to forward data for other TAPs, and thus eliminates the location-dependent unfairness problem in the backhaul network.  ...  In this paper, we study the fairness problem by using game theory and propose a monetary incentive mechanism to achieve fair resource sharing for wireless backhaul networks in the presence of selfish TAPs  ...
