Performance Analysis of the B.A.T.M.A.N. Wireless Ad-Hoc Network Routing Protocol With Mobility and Directional Antennas
Source: University of Adelaide
In this paper, the authors show how the network routing protocol B.A.T.M.A.N. can be augmented by a simple hysteresis mechanism called Batrytis in order to provide a more stable routing table with no decrease in performance. This leads to an improved operating environment for various networked applications. They conduct various indoor and outdoor experiments showing the operation of Batrytis. They also demonstrate its operation with directional antennas and propose various improvements both at the network and MAC layer.
