For next-generation network topologies, the distributed wireless ad-hoc network is one of the most challenging issues because of the inherent node intelligence decision. Nevertheless, due to the randomness of node distribution, it is difficult to achieve high efficiency without signaling to neighboring nodes to coordinate random interference among the nodes, which, in turn, leads to high computational overhead in general. In this paper, we propose a framework of distributed multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) ad-hoc networks to improve link capacity while achieving computational simplicity without interworking with other links in a fully distributed manner. To achieve this goal, we align three main resource management algorithms, i.e., the distributed link-scheduling algorithm (DLSA), the distributed power allocation algorithm (DPAA), and the distributed cooperative beamforming algorithm (DCBA). In the simulation results, performance has proven to be promising in terms of the average sum rate, compared with that of other conventional schemes.
