Towards LP Modeling for Maximizing Throughput and Minimizing Routing Delay in Proactive Protocols in Wireless Multi-hop Networks
Wireless Multi-hop Networks (WMhNs) provide users with the facility to communicate while moving with whatever the node speed, the node density and the number of traffic flows they want, without any unwanted delay and/or disruption. This paper contributes Linear Programming models (LP-models) for WMhNs. In WMhNs, different routing protocols are used to facilitate users demand(s). To practically examine constraints of respective LP-models over different routing techniques, the authors select three proactive routing protocols; Destination Sequence Distance Vector (DSDV), Fish-eye State Routing (FSR) and Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR). These protocols are simulated in two important scenarios regarding to user demands; mobilities and different network flows. To evaluate the performance, they further relate the protocols strategy effects on respective constraints in selected network scenarios.
