increase network capacity it is optimal to reduce the transmit power level For transmit range r The area of interference is proportional to r2 The relaying burden is proportional to 1r Then The area consumed by a packet is proportional to r Design Principles For Power Control Reducing the transmit power level reduces the average contention at the MAC layer For any given point in the domain An average of ch transmitters within range Traffic flowing through each node is proportional to 1r then The net radio traffic in contention range is proportional to r Design Principles For Power Control
