Jamming-Resistant Collaborative Broadcast in Wireless Networks, Part I: Single-Hop Networks
The authors propose a collaborative broadcast scheme for wireless networks, which is based on the Uncoordinated Frequency Hopping (UFH) technique and exploits the node cooperation to achieve higher communication efficiency and stronger jamming resistance. In the collaborative broadcast, nodes that already obtain the broadcast message help forward the message to other nodes. Relying on the sheer number of relay nodes, which grows with time surely, their scheme is fundamentally more powerful than most recent attempts for anti-jamming broadcast. Potential applications include emergency alert broadcast and distribution of key system information in the presence of jamming.
