Optimizing the Implementation of a MANET Routing Protocol in a Heterogeneous Environment

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper focuses on the implementation of heterogeneous Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANET). A heterogeneous MANET is a wireless network setting without a fixed infrastructure where participating devices may be of different kind (e.g., desktop, laptop, or palmtop computers), may not share the same operating system (e.g., Linux, Windows NT, or Windows CE), and may not share the same wireless technology (e.g., Bluetooth, or IEEE 802.11b). The authors describe the design and implementation of a prototype for the OLSR routing protocol, targeting multiple operating systems, devices, and radio technologies.
