With the advance of wireless local area network (WLAN) technology, handoff support has become one of the most important issues in IEEE 802.11 WLANs. However, the current IEEE 802.11 specification does not provide the fast handoff required for real-time multimedia applications. To support fast handoff in IEEE 802.11 networks, a number of fast-handoff schemes have been proposed in the literature. In... View full abstract»

Communications voids, where geographic greedy forwarding fails to move a packet further towards its destination, are an important issue for geographic routing in wireless networks. This article presents an overview of the void problem and surveys the currently available void-handling techniques (as of July 2006) for geographic routing. In the survey, we classify these void-handling techniques into... View full abstract»
