Title

Poster Session A: Address Auto-configuration in mobile ad hoc networks using OLSR

Abstract/Description

Mobile Ad Hoc Networks is dynamic multi-hop network that is formed by a set of mobile wireless nodes that are sharing the same bandwidth. So every node possibly acts as a host as well as a router. In traditional networks, hosts can depend on the central servers like DHCP for IP assignment and management, but it cannot be extended to MANET due to its distributed and dynamic nature. Many solutions have been proposed, amongst them some are try to extend the stateless configuration of IPv6 for MANET; others distribute IP addresses among nodes (using binary distribution). Most of these proposed solutions have lag consideration of network partitioning and merging. Our proposed solution not only caters the need of configuration but also covers the issues of network partitioning and merging by introducing extension to OLSR protocol.
