Lessons Learned From Real MANET Experiments and Simulation-Based Evaluation of TCP

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Although more than a decade of research has been done but pure general-purpose MANET is still not available rather than few prototypes within laboratory due to both technical and socio-economic point of view. Lacking in appropriate guidelines for realistic user traces, mobility models, routing protocols and considering real-life challenges, it is difficult to reproduce any typical scenario in reality apart from simulation. In this paper, difficulties faced to regenerate real-life scenarios have been discussed to clearly identify the gaps in simulation and real-time experiments.
