Many ad hoc network protocols and applications assume the knowledge of geographic location of nodes. The absolute location of each networked node is an assumed fact by most sensor networks which can then present the sensed information on a geographical map. Finding location without the aid of GPS in each node of an ad hoc network is important in cases where(More)

IP-based solutions to accommodate mobile hosts within existing internetworks do not address the distinctive features of wireless mobile computing. IP-based transport protocols thus suffer from poor performance when a mobile host communicates with a host on the fixed network. This is caused by frequent disruptions in network layer connectivity due to — i)(More)
Organizing massive amount of data on wireless communication networks in order to provide fast and low power access to users equipped with palmtops, is a new challenge to the data management and telecommunication communities. Solutions must take under consideration the physical restrictions of low network bandwidth and limited battery life of palmtops. This(More)
This paper describes a reservation protocol to provide real-time services to mobile users in an Integrated Services Packet Network. Mobility of hosts has significant impact on the quality of service provided to a real-time application. The currently proposed network system architecture and mechanisms to provide real-time services to fixed hosts are(More)
Sensor networks are meant for sensing and disseminating information about the environment they sense. The criticality of a sensed phenomenon determines it’s importance to the end user. Hence data dissemination in a sensor network should be informationaware. Such information-awareness is essential firstly to disseminate critical information more reliably and(More)
Many sensor applications are being developed that require the location of wireless devices, and localization schemes have been developed to meet this need. However, as location-based services become more prevalent, the localization infrastructure will become the target of malicious attacks. These attacks will not be conventional security threats, but rather(More)
