QoS Support, Security and OSPF Interconnection in a MANET Using OLSR
Source: Ecole Polytechnique
MANET networks are of prime interest for military networks. One of the pro-eminent routing protocols for MANET is OLSR, and indeed, OLSR has been used in many evaluations and experiments of MANETs. As OLSR is on its way to standardization, there are still a number of extensions that are useful and sometimes necessary for practical use of OLSR networks: such extensions are Quality of Service support (QoS), security, and OSPF interconnection. In this paper, the authors present the architecture, design, specifications and implementations that they made to integrate these features in a military testbed. This testbed is a real MANET comprising 18 nodes. These nodes communicate by radio and use the IEEE 802.11b MAC protocol.
