    Directional antennas can significantly improve the spatial reuse of a mobile ad hoc network (MANET), leading to higher network throughput. This gain comes with a substantial energy saving that results from beamforming the transmitter and/or receiver antennas in the appropriate directions. However, several medium access problems resurface when directional antennas are integrated into existing MAC p... View full abstract»

    Many MAC sub-layer protocols for supporting the use of directional antennas in ad hoc networks have been proposed. However, there remain two open issues that are yet to be resolved completely. First, in order to exploit fully the spatial diversity gains due to the use of directional antennas, it is essential to shift to the exclusive use of directional antennas for the transmission and reception o...

  • Exploiting path diversity in the link layer in wireless ad hoc networks

    We develop an anycast mechanism at the link layer for wireless ad hoc networks. The goal is to exploit path diversity in the link layer by choosing the best next hop to forward packets when multiple next hop choices are available. Such choices can come from a multipath routing protocol, for example. This technique can reduce transmission retries and packet drop probabilities in the face of channel... View full abstract»

  • A scenario-based performance evaluation of multicast routing protocols for ad hoc networks

    Current ad hoc multicast routing protocols have been designed to build and maintain a tree or mesh in the face of a mobile environment, with fast reaction to network changes in order to minimize packet loss. However, the performance of these protocols has not been adequately examined under realistic scenarios. Existing performance studies generally use a single, simple mobility model, with low den...

    Both mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) and peer-to-peer (P2P) networks are decentralized and self-organizing networks with dynamic topology and are responsible for routing queries in a distributed environment. Because MANETs are composed of resource-constrained devices susceptible to faults, whereas P2P networks are fault-tolerant, P2P networks are the ideal data sharing system for MANETs. We have c...

  • Stable, congestion-controlled application-layer multicasting in pedestrian ad-hoc networks

    Ad-hoc networks enable mobile devices to communicate without any fixed infrastructure. While reliable multicasting has been identified as a key application in this context, we analyze different aspects of ad-hoc networks and their impact on application-layer multicast. As a result, we propose a technique of local broadcast-clustering, making use of the wireless medium's broadcast capability. We fu... View full abstract»

    As the adoption of 2.5G and 3G systems grows, multimedia streaming is one of the services that operators will increasingly seek to provide. The multimedia streaming solutions that have successfully been deployed commercially on the Internet in the past are all based on proprietary technologies. However, existing streaming applications need to be considerably rethought to work well over wireless. T... View full abstract»

    The rollout of 3G networks coincides with the emergence of a variety of wireless access technologies (IEEE 802.11x, Bluetooth, etc.) supporting high bitrates in restricted areas and being complementary to wide coverage mobile networks. Integration of the different wireless access technologies is the general trend towards 4G. Our work focuses on the area of handover management in the context of 4G,... View full abstract»

    The new paradigm of dynamic spectrum access (DSA) networks aims to provide opportunistic access to large parts of the underutilized spectrum. The majority of research in this area has focused on free-for-all, uncoordinated access methods common in ad-hoc military applications (Horne, W. 2003; Leaves, P. et al., 2002; Lehr, W. et al., 2002; Schafer, D.J.; Tönjes, R., 2002). We argue that a sim... View full abstract»

    We present an analytical model that accounts for the positions of stations with respect to the access point (AP) while evaluating the performance of the 802.11 MAC layer. Our work is based on the Bianchi model where the performance of the 802.11 MAC layer is computed using a discrete time Markov chain, but where all stations are implicitly assumed to be located at the same distance from the AP.

    IEEE 802.11 wireless local area networks that span large buildings or campuses must comprise multiple cells, several of which must necessarily be cochannel cells. It can be shown that in such multicell networks, typically, the radio ranges of cochannel cells overlap. The paper studies the saturation throughput performance of two cochannel cells with critical overlap, i.e., their interference range... View full abstract»

    Experts in the mobile industry had forecast that multimedia messaging would soon be as successful as text messaging. However, recent studies have shown the opposite: usage and interest in MMS have reduced dramatically in the UK and US during this year. Several reasons have been mentioned: lack of interoperability; too high pricing; poor usability; low penetration; lack of attractive use cases. Bes... View full abstract»

    Service discovery in mobile ad hoc networks is challenging because of the absence of any central intelligence in the network. Traditional solutions, as used in the Internet, are hence not well suited for mobile ad hoc networks. We present a novel decentralized service discovery mechanism for ad hoc networks. The basic idea is to distribute information about available services to the network neighb... View full abstract»
