A Reliability Calculations Model for Large-Scale MANETs
The mobile ad hoc network Extensibility is an issue of concern and research. The wireless network extensibility seems to be an inherent capability of MANETs taking into consideration the Multi-hop data transfer scheme. The limits of extensibility and the tradeoff between MANET stretching and the reliability concerns need to be exercised with a deterministic model. The reliability calculation methods proposed in past have an exponential growth factor for time complexity as number of nodes increase, thus making it computationally unfeasible to calculate reliability of large scale mobile networks. This paper proposes a reliability calculation scheme which is realistic for calculating reliability of large scale MANETs.
