    Data caching can significantly improve the efficiency of information access in a wireless ad hoc network by reducing the access latency and bandwidth usage. However, designing efficient distributed caching algorithms is nontrivial when network nodes have limited memory. In this article, we consider the cache placement problem of minimizing total data access cost in ad hoc networks with multiple da... View full abstract»

    The limited number of orthogonal channels and autonomous installations of hot spots and home wireless networks often leave neighboring 802.11 basic service sets (BSSs) operating on the same or overlapping channels, therefore interfering with each other. However, the 802.11 medium access control (MAC) does not work well in resolving inter-BSS interference due to the well-known hidden/exposed-receiv... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces the problem of fault-tolerant topology control for all-to-one and one-to-all communication in static wireless networks with asymmetric wireless links. This problem is important in both theoretical and practical aspects. We investigate two approaches, namely, the minimum-weight-based approach and the augmentation-based approach, to address this problem. Furthermore, we prove t... View full abstract»

    Fourth generation (4G) wireless networks will provide high-bandwidth connectivity with quality-of-service (QoS) support to mobile users in a seamless manner. In such a scenario, a mobile user will be able to connect to different wireless access networks such as a wireless metropolitan area network (WMAN), a cellular network, and a wireless local area network (WLAN) simultaneously. We present a gam... View full abstract»

  • On the Trade-Off between Energy and Multicast Efficiency in 802.16e-Like Mobile Networks

    In this paper, we define a new problem that has not been addressed in the past: the trade-off between energy efficiency and throughput for multicast services in 802.16e or similar mobile networks. In such networks, the mobile host can reduce its energy consumption by entering the sleep mode when it is not supposed to receive or transmit information. For unicast applications, the tradeoff between d... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a novel method to perform a quantitative analysis of message complexity and applies this method in comparing the message complexity among the mobile ad hoc network (MANET) address autoconfiguration protocols (AAPs). The original publications on the AAPs had incomplete parts, making them insufficient to use on practical MANETs. Therefore, the first objective of the research was ... View full abstract»

  • Performance Improvements Provided by Route Diversity in Multihop Wireless Networks

    In multihop wireless networks, the variability of channels results in some paths providing better performance than other paths. Although it is well known that some paths are better than others, a significant number of routing protocols do not focus on utilizing optimal paths. However, cooperative diversity, which is an area of recent interest, provides techniques for efficiently exploiting path an... View full abstract»
