In this paper we present an extension to the OLSR unicast routing protocol to support multicast routing in mobile ad hoc networks. The proposed protocol is based on Multicast Overlay Spanning Trees (MOST). The main benefits of this approach are twofold. Firstly, it implies that only nodes interested in taking part in the multicast communication need to(More)
We study the benefits of multicast routing in the performance of wireless ad hoc networks. In particular we show that if a node wishes to communicate with n distinct destinations, multicast can reduce the overall network load by a factor Oð ffiffiffi n p Þ, when used instead of unicast. One of the implications of this scaling property consists in a(More)
Mobility causes frequent link failures in ad-hoc networks. This results in a severe degradation of performance specially in case of high mobility of nodes. This is because the routing protocols for ad-hoc networks are not equipped to handle high mobility. In this paper, we have presented a new link management algorithm to locally manage ∗This work is(More)
This paper addresses the problem of the evaluation of the delay distribution via analytical means in IEEE 802.11 wireless ad hoc networks. We show that the asymptotic delay distribution can be expressed as a power law. Based on the latter result, we present a cross-layer delay estimation protocol and we derive new delay distribution based routing(More)

This paper addresses the problem of the evaluation of the packet delay delivery distribution via analytical means in a multihop wireless network. We assume that the wireless network operates with the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol and implements the Optimal Link State Routing (OLSR) protocol [4]. The routing protocol is a table driven protocol that updates(More)
Medical imaging applications produce large sets of similar images. The huge amount of data makes the manual analysis and interpretation a fastidious task. Medical image segmentation is thus an important process in image processing used to partition the images into different regions (e.g. gray matter, white matter and cerebrospinal fluid). Hidden Markov(More)
In this article, we describe experiments with the multicast protocol MOST (Multicast Overlay minimum Spanning Tree) on a real testbed. The testbed is a wireless multi-hop network with nodes running a MANET protocol, the OLSRv2 routing protocol, and with IEEE 802.11g hardware. We present our specification and implementation of MOST for OLSRv2. Its main(More)
