Using Swarm Intelligence to Optimize Caching Techniques for Ad Hoc Network
Caching has been used to improve the performance of network-dependent computer system. A number of cache replacement schemes along with invalidation reports schemes have been devised for MANETs. Apart from improving the response time of request in MANET, caching also increases the network lifetime. In this paper, it is shown how the ant colony optimization is applied to caching system so as to further improve the performance and lifetime of the ad hoc network.
