Multimedia applications in multihop wireless networks have great market potential. Multiple channels and multiple radios are commonly used to explore multimedia transmissions in multihop wireless networks. Split transmission allows multiple channels attached to different radios to be used simultaneously, and so to achieve a fundamentally improved transmission capacity. The goal of this paper is to present a theoretical background to justify the improved performance of split transmission. We theoretically study and derive formulae to study the improvement in worst-case delay, average throughput and average delay jitter when using split transmission as opposed to non-split transmission. We believe that this is the first attempt to consider split transmission in theory.
