A number of library-based parallel and sequential network simulators have been designed. This paper describes a library, called GloMoSim (for Global Mobile system Simulator), for parallel simulation of wireless networks. GloMoSim has been designed to be extensible and composable: the communication protocol stack for wireless networks is divided into a set(More)
TCP Westwood (TCPW) is a sender-side modification of the TCP congestion window algorithm that improves upon the performance of TCP Reno in wired as well as wireless networks. The improvement is most significant in wireless networks with lossy links, since TCP Westwood relies on end-to-end bandwidth estimation to discriminate the cause of packet loss(More)
In this paper, we present a survey of various mobility models in both cellular networks and multi-hop networks. We show that group motion occurs frequently in ad hoc networks, and introduce a novel group mobility model Reference Point Group Mobility (RPGM) to represent the relationship among mobile hosts. RPGM can be readily applied to many existing(More)
In recent years, routing has been the most focused area in ad hoc networks research. On-demand routing in particular, is widely developed in bandwidth constrained mobile wireless ad hoc networks because of its effectiveness and efficiency. Most proposed on-demand routing protocols however, build and rely on single route for each data session. Whenever there(More)
A multi-cluster, multi-hop packet radio network architecture for wireless adaptive mobile information systems is presented. The proposed network supports multimedia traffic and relies on both time division and code division access schemes. This radio network is not supported by a wired infrastructure as conventional cellular systems are. Thus, it can be(More)
This paper describes a self-organizing, multihop, mobile radio network, which relies on a code division access scheme for multimedia support. In the proposed network architecture, nodes are organized into nonoverlapping clusters. The clusters are independently controlled and are dynamically reconfigured as nodes move. This network architecture has three(More)
An ad hoc network is a dynamically reconfigurable wireless network with no fixed infrastructure or central administration. Each host is mobile and must act as a router. Routing and multicasting protocols in ad hoc networks are faced with the challenge of delivering data to destinations through multihop routes in the presence of node movements and topology(More)
This paper studies TCP performance over multihop wireless networks that use the IEEE 802.11 protocol as the access method. Our analysis and simulations show that, given a specific network topology and flow patterns, there exists a TCP window size W , at which TCP achieves best throughput via improved spatial channel reuse. However, TCP does not operate(More)
Large-scale hybrid networks that include wireless, wired, and satellite based communications are becoming common in both military and commercial situations. This paper describes a scalable simulation environment called GloMoSim (for Global Mobile Information System Simulator) that effectively utilizes parallel execution to reduce the simulation time of(More)
