Performance evaluation of wireless networks exploiting multi-beam antennas in multipath environments

The use of multi-beam antennas has been shown to significantly enhance the network throughput by improving the spatial reuse and coverage. In this paper, we consider both the multi-channel smart antenna (MCSA) and the multiple fixed-beam antennas (MFBA) and evaluate their node throughput performance...
