Gossiping with interference in radio ring networks


In this paper, we study the problem of gossiping with interference constraint in radio networks. Gossiping (or total exchange information) is a protocol where each node in the network has a message and is expected to distribute its own message to every other node in the network. We focus on the case where the transmission network is a ring network that is a node has 2 neighbors and can only transmit to its neighbors (such an action is named a call). We consider synchronous protocols where it takes one unit of time (step) to transmit a unit-length message. During one step we suppose that a node cannot send and receive (half duplex model). Moreover communication is subject to interference constraints. We model them by a fixed integer dI ≥ 1, which implies that nodes within distance dI from a sender in the network cannot receive messages from another node. Here we focus on the case dI = 1, which implies that if a node receives a message from one of its neighbors, its other neighbor cannot send at the same time. A round consists of a set of non-interfering (or compatible) calls and uses one step. We solve completely the problem for ring networks, with unit length messages and dI = 1 by giving the minimum running time (makespan) of a gossiping protocol that is the minimum number of rounds needed to complete the gossiping. We first show lower bounds and then give gossiping algorithms which meet these lower bounds and so are optimal.
