In this paper we demonstrate the concept of wired- equivalent capacity in ad-hoc networks through a large-scale simulation study. A capacity model that mimics conventional experience (e.g. on wired, infrastructured networks) is proposed under a specific, yet realistic and user-oriented, assumption of the maximum fair usage. Capacity is then the maximum throughput capacity per node under which packet loss is similar to that of a conventional wired network, for all nodes. We show how this capacity metric becomes predictable inside ad-hoc networks using a simple power-law while delay is bounded.
