This paper presents two novel mechanisms for the OLSR routing protocol, aiming to improve its energy performance in Mobile ah-hoc Networks. Routing protocols over MANET are an important issue and many proposals have been addressed to efficiently manage topology information, to offer network scalability and to prolong network lifetime. However, few papers(More)
Energy awareness for computation and protocol management is becoming a crucial factor in the design of protocols and algorithms. On the other hand, in order to support node mobility, scalable routing strategies have been designed and these protocols try to consider the path duration in order to respect some QoS constraints and to reduce the route discovery(More)
In this paper we have carried out an accurate overview on Voice over IP QoS evaluation techniques. We have described in a detailed way the most important measurement methods that are subdivided in subjective and objective methods. Subjective measurements (e.g. Mean Opinion Score-MOS) are the benchmark for objective methods, but they are slow, time consuming(More)
In the past few years, there has been much research in wireless adaptive networking and resource management, in order to examine how to efficiently handle wireless communications between mobile hosts and base stations. In this paper, we focus the attention on the mobile independent predictive (MIP) service class, which provides a passive reservation policy,(More)
Recently, distributed mobile wireless computing is becoming a very important communications paradigm, due to its flexibility to adapt to different mobile applications. As many other distributed networks, routing operations assume a crucial importance in system optimization, especially when considering dense urban areas, where interference effects cannot be(More)
In this paper, the problem of finding optimal paths in mobile ad hoc networks is addressed. More specifically, a novel bicriteria optimization model, which allows the energy consumption and the link stability of mobile nodes to be taken into account simultaneously, is presented. In order to evaluate the validity of the proposed model, a greedy approach is(More)
