A Combined Routing Method for Ad Hoc Wireless Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Several simulation and real world studies show that certain ad hoc routing protocols perform better than others under specific mobility and traffic patterns. In order to exploit this phenomena, the authors propose a novel approach to adapt a network to changing conditions; they introduce "A combined routing method" that allows the network to seamlessly swap from one routing protocol to another protocol dynamically, while routing continues uninterrupted. By creating a thin new virtual layer, they enable each node in the ad hoc wireless network notify each other about the protocol swap and they do not make any changes to existing routing protocols.
