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 ffiffi ffi n p Þ, when used instead of uni-cast. One of the implications of this scaling property consists in a(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)
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)
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 links. This new(More)
In this proposition, we present a link management technique for pro-active routing protocols for ad-hoc networks. This new mechanism is based on signal strength hence cross layer approach is used. The hysteresis mechanism provided by OLSR is improved upon by using signal strength in combination with the hello loss based hysteresis. The signal power is used(More)
