Self-Managing Energy-Efficient Multicast Support in MANETs Under End-to-End Reliability Constraints
Source: Arizona State University
Dynamic networks, e.g. Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), call for self-healing routing protocols to tolerate topological changes imposed by node mobility. Moreover, emerging time-critical MANET applications such as disaster response and rescue, and battlefield operations, require support for real-time, reliable data streaming, while maintaining energy efficiency. However, most of the energy-efficient routing protocols rely on configuration parameters which need to be estimated and specified before the deployment phase. This paper proposes a self-managing, energy-efficient multicast routing suite based on the self stabilization paradigm.
