Title

Networks - I: An instantiation of Way Point Routing for Mobile ad hoc Networks

Abstract/Description

Mobile ad hoc networks are increasingly finding their existence in the marketplace heading to a new paradigm of pervasive computing. However there are many areas open to research in the field. Due to node mobility resulting in an ever-changing network topology, conventional routing methods cannot be applied in MANETS. Therefore, this is one of the core areas of research. Researchers are challenged to design protocols that can potentially scale to anything from thousand to tens of thousands of nodes and to reduce the route discovery latency. In this paper a different instantiation of way point routing (WPR) model is proposed, where a route is divided into sub-routes to decrease route-latency in frequently occurring subsequent-route-discoveries and to adapt varying topologies in MANET, and future simulations are suggested to evaluate the performance of the proposed routing protocol.

Mobile ad hoc networks are increasingly finding their existence in the marketplace heading to a new paradigm of pervasive computing. However there are many areas open to research in the field. Due to node mobility resulting in an ever-changing network topology, conventional routing methods cannot be applied in MANETS. Therefore, this is one of the core areas of research. Researchers are challenged to design protocols that can potentially scale to anything from thousand to tens of thousands of nodes and to reduce the route discovery latency. In this paper a different instantiation of way point routing (WPR) model is proposed, where a route is divided into sub-routes to decrease route-latency in frequently occurring subsequent-route-discoveries and to adapt varying topologies in MANET, and future simulations are suggested to evaluate the performance of the proposed routing protocol.
