Restoring the Connectivity in K-Connected MANET When All Edge Disjoint Minimum Spanning Trees Fail

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Due to random mobility of nodes in MANETs, the connectivity of the nodes in very sensitive environments becomes a serious issue and is subject to increased risk of damage. Sometimes a MANET suffers from the simultaneous failure of multiple multicast paths and gets partitioned into disjoint segments. In order to avoid poor performance of a multicast/ unicast routing protocol and to curb the adverse affect on an application performance, it is essential to restore the network connectivity. In this paper, the authors propose a novel strategy, designed and implemented to restore the connectivity in MANET as well as to compute Steiner minimum spanning tree.
