The performance analysis of multihop wireless networks requires appropriate performance measures in order to take into consideration the intrinsic characteristics of this type of networks. The information efficiency is a measure of how efficiently bits of information are transmitted in multihop networks. In this paper we investigate the performance of a multihop network, by evaluating its total information efficiency, defined as the sum of the amount of information efficiency of all active one-hop links at a given time. By using the total information efficiency as a performance measure, we are able to evaluate the effects of channel reuse throughout the network and analyze the resulting tradeoffs involving different modulation schemes, different transmission ranges and the propagation effects.
