Network Connectivity Based Topology Control for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Energy consumption and network connectivity are two of the important research issues that are yet to be resolved in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs). However, only a few topology control methods (e.g.) take into account the low interference as a goal of the methods. Some researchers tried to indirectly reduce the interference by reducing the transmission power or by devising low degree topologies, but none of those protocols can guarantee low interference. In this research paper, the authors propose Network Connectivity based Topology Control (NCTC) to make the correct the balance between interference and energy in order to improve the network lifetime of networks. It consists of two phases. In first phase, the reduction of interference is achieved. In second phase, efficient topology
