Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are dynamic networks populated by mobile stations. Stations in MANETs are usually laptops, PDAs or mobile phones. These devices feature Bluetooth and/or IEEE 802.11 (WiFi) network interfaces and communicate in a decentralized manner. Mobility is a key feature of MANETs. Because of their high cost and their lack of flexibility(More)
Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) are composed of a set of communicating devices, which are able to spontaneously interconnect without any pre-existing infrastructure. In such scenario, broadcasting becomes an operation of capital importance for the own existence and operation of the network. Optimizing a broadcast strategy in MANETs is a multi-objective(More)
This paper presents a new broadcasting protocol called Delayed Flooding with Cumulative Neighborhood (DFCN) designed for wireless ad hoc networks. DFCN enables bandwidth-efficient broadcasting in wide area network composed of large number of mobile devices. The protocol was validated trough simulation which proved its efficiency and cost-effectiveness.(More)

—When considering realistic mobility patterns, nodes in mobile ad hoc networks move in such a way that the networks most often get divided in a set of disjoint partitions. This presence of partitions is an obstacle to communication within these networks. Ad hoc networks are generally based on technologies allowing nodes in a geographical neighborhood to(More)
Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) are a sub-class of mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). They are mobile wireless networks that feature inherent connection disruption. In particular such networks are generally non-connected. In this paper we focus on defining a broadcast service which operate on DTNs. A number of protocols solving the problem of broadcasting(More)
The Autonomous System (AS) topology of the Internet (up to 61k ASs) is growing at a rate of about 10% per year. The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) starts to show its limits in terms of the number of routing table entries it can dynamically process and control. Due to the increasing routing information processing and storage, the same trend is observed for(More)
