Quality-of-service (QoS) is a key problem of today's IP networks. Many frameworks (IntServ, DiffServ, MPLS etc.) have been proposed to provide service differentiation in the Internet. At the same time, the Internet is becoming more and more heterogeneous due to the recent explosion of wireless networks. In wireless environments, bandwidth is scarce and(More)
— This paper describes an adaptive service differentiation scheme for QoS enhancement in IEEE 802.11 wireless ad-hoc networks. Our approach, called Adaptive Enhanced Distributed Coordination Function (AEDCF), is derived from the new EDCF introduced in the upcoming IEEE 802.11e standard. Our scheme aims to share the transmission channel efficiently. Relative(More)
— Nowadays, the cross-layer design approach is an important concept in mobile ad-hoc networks which is adopted to solve several open issues. It aims to overcome MANET performance problems by allowing protocols belonging to different layers to cooperate and share network status informations while still maintaining separated layers. Indeed, the mechanisms on(More)
This paper describes an adaptive routing mechanism based on the energy consumption speed of nodes for on-demand routing protocols in mobile ad-hoc networks. Our algorithm allows a fairly energy consumption during route establishment by building routes that are lower congested than other. To to this, the congestion information is obtained from a computed(More)
In this work, we present a Cross-Layer Forwarding Strategy (CLFS), which is based on the cooperation between the new IEEE 802.11e MAC protocol (EDCA) and the On-Demand AODV routing protocol. The proposal aims to minimize the number of Forwarding nodes (FN) by hop, in the network. By this way, we decrease the contention amount and we improve the medium(More)
One of the key challenges in multimedia networks is video delivery over wireless channels. MRC (Multi-Resolution Coding) Layered video, divides video into a base layer and multiple enhancement layers. In this paper, we aim to improve video quality, impacted by high channel contention, through mapping individual video layers to EDCA (Enhanced Distributed(More)
