Abstract

In this paper, we use the concept of Markovian jump linear systems in order to analyze the age of information (AoI) in discrete-time Markovian systems. This approach is in fact, the discrete-time counterpart of the stochastic hybrid system (SHS) model reported for analyzing AoI in continuous=time Markovian systems and thus, is referred to as the discrete-time SHS (DT-SHS) model. We then apply the DT-SHS model in two wireless relay network settings to analyze and optimize the AoI associated with the static link scheduling policies. The first relay network comprises of one relay and a direct link between source and destination, whereas the second setting has two relays and no direct link. Moreover, a static link scheduling policy schedules the links without any knowledge about the state of the network. Using results obtained through numerical simulations, we validate our analytical approach and show the effect of relays in AoI improvement.
