Systems, Methods, Devices, and Computer Program Products for Control and Performance Prediction in Wireless Networks

Abstract 

Systems, methods, devices, and computer program products are directed to mobility control and performance prediction in directional wireless networks. Network coverage and connectivity are optimized. Convex and non-convex network modeling is implemented to provide adaptive topology con­trol and mobility control within the network, whereby communication links are retained, released, or reconfigured based on their communication role within the network architecture. Optionally or alternatively, network health is monitored, future network failure or degradation conditions are predicted, and the network reconfigures responsive to the pre­dictions to avoid the failure or degradation conditions.
