Description: The article analyzes the modern methods of clustering of the information-communication network. The method of multicriteria clusterization of the wireless information and communication network, which differs by the method of multicriteria optimization according to the nonlinear compromise scheme, is improved, which makes it possible to reduce the time for the transmission of information. Reducing the time to transmit information is achieved by choosing as the controller of the cluster of the node with the largest battery power supply, the highest bandwidth and the least total distance to all nodes in the cluster. The selected criteria characterize the power parameters of the network and the functionality of the device for transmitting information in the minimum time. To find a device whose parameters best meet the conditions for maximum battery power, maximum bandwidth and minimum distance from the rest of the devices, a nonlinear compromise scheme is used which combines the conflicting nature of the partial criteria. The results of the testing of the efficiency of the method of multicriteria clusterization of the wireless information-communication network based on its sample, consisting of modern mobile devices of different manufacturers, are presented. On the basis of the example, it is shown that when applying the developed method, the time of transmission of information and energy costs for its transmission are reduced.
