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)
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)
—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)
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)
1 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)
