Parallel Rendezvous Protocol with Improved Broadcast Mechanism for Ad-Hoc Networks
Wireless Ad-hoc NETwork technologies and standards such as IEEE 802.11s (WANET) are efficient, economic and simple to deploy. To increase the performance of ad hoc wireless networks, multiple rendezvous multi-channel MAC protocols are used. But this multi-channel MAC protocols has certain disadvantages such as broadcast issue, busy receiver problem, multi-channel hidden terminal problem etc. By using a proper broadcasting mechanism users can solve many of these problems. In this paper, the authors are focusing on broadcast issue faced by some of the multiple rendezvous protocols and provide a solution for the problem.
