Wise-DAD Auto-Configuration for Wireless Multi-Hop Networks
Source: University Of Zululand
Providing unique IP addresses efficiently in ad-hoc networks is still an open research question. Many protocols to address this problem have been proposed. Duplicate Address Detection (DAD) is one of the most important components of IP address auto-configuration protocols. DAD by itself is not an auto configuration protocol but a means of checking for duplicate IP addresses before an address could be assigned to a new network node. The chance of a DAD procedure succeeding depends on the number of nodes in the network and the number of free IP addresses remaining.
