The authors present a detailed simulation based performance study of their recently proposed Strong-Neighborhood based Connected Dominating Sets (SN-CDS) for Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs). They compare the performance of SN-CDS with that of the well-known Minimum Connected Dominating Sets (MCDS) and the ID-based Connected Dominating Sets (ID-CDS) for MANETs. They show that by computing the SN-CDS involving links that are only within 90% of the maximum transmission range of the nodes, they are able to significantly improve the stability of the CDS (as large as 250%), compared to the MCDS strategy of choosing the minimum number of nodes to cover the entire network.
