<italic>In an ad hoc network, each host assumes the role of a router and relays packets toward final destinations. This paper studies efficient routing mechanisms for multicast and broadcast in ad hoc wireless networks. Because a packet is broadcast to all neighboring nodes, the optimality criteria of wireless network routing is different from that of wired(More)
The IEEE 802.11 standard for wireless local area networks (WLANs) employs a medium access control (MAC), called distributed coordination function (DCF), which is based on carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA). The collision avoidance mechanism utilizes the random backoff prior to each frame transmission attempt. The random nature(More)
Recent research on Internet traffic classification has yield a number of data mining techniques for distinguishing types of traffic, but no systematic analysis on "Why" some algorithms achieve high accuracies. In pursuit of empirically grounded answers to the "Why" question, which is critical in understanding and establishing a scientific ground for traffic(More)
Widespread deployment of infrastructure WLANs has made Wi-Fi an integral part of today's Internet access technology. Despite its crucial role in affecting end-to-end performance, past research has focused on MAC protocol enhancement, analysis, and simulation-based performance evaluation without sufficient consideration for modeling inaccuracies stemming(More)

Wireless Internet access is facilitated by IEEE 802.11 WLANs that, in addition to realizing a specific form of CSMA/CA-distributed coordination function (DCF)- implement a range of performance enhancement features such as multi-rate adaptation that induce cross-layer protocol coupling. Recent works in empirical WLAN performance evaluation have shown that(More)
In this paper, we first propose an analytical model of WLANs (wireless LANs) with an arbitrary backoff distribution and AIFS (arbitration inter-frame space). From the analysis, we show that the achievable bandwidth is determined by the mean of backoff distribution regardless of the shape of the backoff distribution. We compare the effectiveness of four(More)
Recent research on Internet traffic classification has produced a number of approaches for distinguishing types of traffic. However, a rigorous comparison of such proposed algorithms still remains a challenge, since every proposal considers a different benchmark for its experimental evaluation. A lack of clear consensus on an objective and cientific way for(More)
Greedy geographic routing has been considered as an attractive approach due to its simplicity and scalability. However, greedy routing is insufficient in terms of routing convergence because of the local maximum problem. In this letter, we propose a novel greedy routing scheme based on a potential field method that dynamically eliminates the local maximum(More)
