A Discussion on Developing Multihop Routing Metrics Sensitive to Node Mobility
This paper is focused on a discussion of parameters and heuristics that are expected to assist multihop routing in becoming more sensitive to node mobility. The authors provide a discussion concerning existing and a few proposed parameters. Moreover, the paper also discusses two new heuristics based on the notion of link duration. The heuristics are compared based on a meaningful set of scenarios that attain different mobility aspects. The most recent paradigms in wireless architectures describe environments where nodes present a somewhat dynamic behavior (e.g. Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks, MANETS) or even a highly dynamic behavior (e.g., User-Provided Networks, UPNs).
