In this paper we present DUCS (distributed underwater clustering scheme), a new GPS-free clustering scheme specifically designed for underwater wireless sensor networks. DUCS is adapted to the intrinsic properties of underwater environments, such as long propagation delays, low data rates and difficulty of synchronization. DUCS minimizes the proactive(More)
Broadband satellite will play an important role to provide universal broadband access for the users. In order to lower the cost, the next-generation satellite systems should support IPv6 and seamlessly integrate with terrestrial networks, including wireless local loops. In this paper, a novel network architecture has been proposed as a potential solution to(More)
