Localized Address Autoconfiguration in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors propose a Localized Address auto-Configuration (LaConf) scheme for wireless ad hoc networks. Address allocation information is maintained on the network border nodes, called Addressing Agents (AAs), which are locally identified by geographic routing protocol GFG. When a node joins the network, it acquires an address from a neighboring AA (if any exists) by local communication or from the head AA (a geographic extreme AA) by GFG-based multi-hop communication. Geographic Hash Table (GHT) is adopted for duplicate address detection. Each address is hashed to a unique location in the network field, and the associated assignment information is stored along the face perimeter enclosing that location (in the planar graph used).
