Modeling Wireless Sensor Networks Using Finite-Source Retrial Queues with Unreliable Orbit

Abstract : Motivated by the need for performance models suitable for modeling and evaluation of wireless sensor networks, we introduce a retrial queueing system with a finite number of homogeneous sources, unreliable servers, orbital search, and unreliable orbit. All random variables involved in model construction are assumed to be independent and exponentially distributed. Providing a generalized stochastic Petri net model of the system, steady-state analysis of the underlying continuous-time Markov chain is performed and steady-state performance measures are computed by the help of the MOSEL-2 tool. The main novelty of this investigation is the introduction of an unreliable orbit and its application to wireless sensor networks. Numerical examples are derived to show the influence of sleep/awake time ratio, message dropping, and message blocking on the senor nodes’ performance.
