Title

An Analytical Framework for Neighbor Discovery Strategies in Ad hoc Networks with Sectorized Antenna

Abstract

This letter analyzes a class of neighbor discovery algorithms in ad hoc networks using directional antennas for both reception and transmission. We consider synchronized and random sector - timeslot assignment strategies and compare their behaviors. Analytic results validated by simulation clearly show the latency benefits of the synchronized sector assignment over the random assignment.
