A wide variety of applications for road safety and traffic efficiency are intended to answer the urgent call for smarter, greener, and safer mobility. Although IEEE 802.11p is considered as the de facto standard for on-the-road communications, stakeholders have recently started to investigate the usability of Long Term Evolution (LTE) to support vehicular(More)
In the last few years, standardization activities within the IEEE 802.16 Working Group have resulted in the publication of specifications for an air interface of Fixed broadband wireless access systems. WiMAX is the commercial name of products compliant with the approved IEEE 802.16 standard. Although the standard suggests the main principles in designing a(More)
2 Outline  Abstract  Introduction  A Chronological Survey  IETF MANET  Geographical Routing  Self-organizing coordinates  Conclusion 3 Abstract  In large networks, a data source may not reach the intended sink in a single hop, thereby requiring the traffic to be routed via multiple hops. An optimized choice of such routing path is known to(More)
—IEEE 802.11p/WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments) is an emerging family of standards intended to support wireless access in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). Broadcasting of data and control packets is expected to be crucial in this environment. Both safety-related and non-safety applications rely on broadcasting for the exchange of data or(More)
Information-Centric Networking (ICN) is a promising architecture for the future Internet that focuses on content rather than IP addresses. By leveraging named-data instead of named-hosts, ICN does not need the set up and maintenance of stable paths between end-nodes. This makes ICN particularly convenient in networks characterized by intermittent(More)
The 802.11p standard has been recently standardized to provide Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE). A multi-channel architecture is envisioned to concurrently support both time-sensitive safety-related applications and value-added informative and entertainment services. According to the WAVE specifications, an alternating channel access scheme(More)
Named Data Networking (NDN) is a promising information-centric architecture for the future Internet that is also gaining momentum in wireless ad hoc networks as an alternative paradigm to traditional IP networking. NDN shares with other information-centric proposals the same innovative concepts, such as named content, name-based routing, and in-network(More)
