Enhancement of Self-Organisation in Wireless Networking Through a Cross-Layer Approach

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Self-organisation has emerged as a very promising approach to the design, deployment, operation, control and evolution of complex wireless networks. The dominant strictly layered design style may however not be able to accommodate many useful optimisations, and the authors conjecture that cross-layer design may offer a more promising approach. In support of this conjecture they demonstrate that through simulation-based approach a cross-layer approach to routing in wireless ad hoc networks that exhibits high degrees of self-configuration, self-optimisation and self-healing. Simulation studies show a substantial improvement in self-organisation properties of wireless networks over comparable layered designs.
