Cross Layer Design Approach in Wireless Mobile ADHOC Network Architecture
Traditional Wired network uses protocol architectures follow the principle of stack layered implemented by ISO/OSI model. ISO/OSI model was developed to support all the standardization of the network architecture using layered model. Initially wireless network also adopts the traditional stack layered architecture from the wired networks. This Layered architectures are not efficiently cope up with the dynamically changing environment in the wireless-dominated next-generation communications with a wide range of Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Wireless network performance can be degraded due to the adaptation of the protocols from layered architecture and Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), which was designed originally for wired network.
