Since the advent of wireless communication, the need for mobile ad hoc networks has been growing exponentially. This has opened up a Pandora’s Box of algorithms for dealing with mobile ad hoc networks, or MANETs, as they are generally referred to. Most attempts made at evaluating these algorithms so far have focused on parameters such as throughput, packet(More)
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a noncentralized, multihop, wireless network that lacks a common infrastructure. It therefore needs self-organization. MANETs are autonomous, adaptive and dynamic in nature. In this paper, we have implemented and tested the performance of the AntHocNet algorithm for routing in mobile ad hoc networks. AntHocNet is an(More)
—Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) also called mesh networks are self-configuring networks of mobile devices connected by wireless links. MANETs are deployed in situations where there is no existing infrastructure, such as emergency search and rescue, military, battlefields, etc. Each application has a different set of requirements. In this paper we(More)
MANETs are a collection of unstructured wireless mobile nodes which provides independence and scalability for mobile topologies. Energy conservation being cardinal in applications such as Emergency and Military operations requires energy efficient solutions. The proposed work is a newer variation of the AODV routing protocol, which tackles major issues in(More)
Mobile Ad-hoc network (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links without a common infrastructure. They move randomly and unpredictably thus making the topology very dynamic in nature. This paper discusses the implementation and performance analysis of the AntHocNet algorithm which is based on the nature-inspired Ant Colony(More)
Due to the increasing popularity of various applications for smart phones, 3G cellular networks are currently overloaded by mobile data traffic. Offloading mobile cellular network traffic through opportunistic communications is a promising solution to partially solve mobile data traffic, because there is no monetary cost for it. To solve this problem we(More)
In last few years, anecdotal evidence of mostly positive experiences with the implementation of agile development has emerged from various case studies. This enables data gathering from a larger sample of organizations, to learn about the factors driving the adoption and use of agile practices, and their benefits and challenges as perceived by early(More)
Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) are a developing type of wireless networks, in which nodes which are mobile in nature, associate on an automatic or ad hoc basis. Mobile Ad Hoc Networks are self-healing and selfforming networks that enable peer-level communications between mobile nodes without fixed infrastructure or reliance on centralized resources. MANETs(More)
The field of wireless networks is an important and challenging area. In this paper we describe, AntHocNet an algorithm for routing in mobile adhoc networks. It is a hybrid algorithm which combines proactive and reactive behavior to compute packet delivery ratio, end to end delay and overhead by varying the speed of the mobile nodes. The algorithm is based(More)
