We present a new distributed routing protocol for mobile, multihop, wireless networks. The protocol is one of a family of protocols which we term “link reversal” algorithms. The protocol’s reaction is structured as a temporally-ordered sequence of diffusing computations; each computation consisting of a sequence of directed link reversals. The protocol is(More)
In this paper we propose a multicast routing protocol for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). The protocol—termed Differential Destination Multicast (DDM)—differs from common approaches proposed for MANET multicast routing in two ways. Firstly, instead of distributing membership control throughout the network, DDM concentrates this authority at the data(More)
A new single channel, TDMA-based broadcast scheduling protocol, termed the Five-Phase Reservation Protocol (FPRP), is presented for mobile ad hoc networks. The protocol jointly and simultaneously performs the tasks of channel access and node broadcast scheduling. The protocol allows nodes to make reservations within TDMA broadcast schedules. It employs a(More)
A Quality-of-Service (QoS) routing protocol is developed for mobile ad hoc networks. It can establish QoS routes with reserved bandwidth on a per flow basis in a network employing TDMA. An efficient algorithm for calculating the end-to-end bandwidth on a path is developed and used together with the route discovery mechanism of AODV to setup QoS routes. In(More)
We present a relative performance comparison of the Temporally-Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA) with an Ideal Link State (ILS) routing algorithm. The performance metrics evaluated include bandwidth efficiency for both control and data, as well as end-to-end message packet delay and throughput. The routing algorithms are compared in the context of a dynamic,(More)
Internet-based Mobile Ad Hoc Networking is an emerging technology that supports self-organizing, mobile networking infrastructures, and is one which appears well-suited for use in future commercial and military applications. This article presents an overview of Mobile Ad Hoc Networking technology and current Internet Engineering Task Force standardization(More)
A new single channel, time division multiple access (TDMA) scheduling protocol, termed “EvolutionaryTDMA”, is presented for mobile ad hoc networks. The protocol allows nodes in an ad hoc network to reserve conflict-free TDMA slots for transmission to their neighbors. Two topology-dependent schedules are generated and maintained by the protocol: a broadcast(More)
