We present a new distributed protocol for setting up and maintaining a backbone for multi-hop mobile networks. Our solution, termed M-Backs, is effective in producing backbones with limited size, while being robust and reliable in the face of node mobility. We compare our protocol with previous solutions for mobile backbone set up and maintenance. M-Backs(More)
This paper presents a new protocol for the formation and maintenance of a backbone from the nodes of an ad hoc network where all the nodes are mobile. The new protocol is defined and its performance evaluated with respect to metrics such as its size, that favors scalability, its connectivity in time, which allows protocols to run efficiently, robustness and(More)
The chapter concerns solutions about the problems of managing the location information of nodes of ad hoc and wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Once nodes know about their location, solutions for location management take care of disseminating this important information to all or some of the other network nodes that need it for routing or other purposes. The(More)
We investigate the performance of a new distributed protocol for setting up and maintaining a backbone for multi-hop mobile networks with multiple radio interfaces. Our solution, termed MM-Backs, is effective in producing backbones with limited size, while being robust and reliable in the face of node mobility. We compare our protocol with a solution for(More)
This paper concerns routing and flow admission controls in personal area networks (PANs) of Bluetooth devices. We define a solution, termed BlueFlows, that jointly implements flow routing and admission. BlueFlows guarantees 10% delivery of all packets of every admitted flow, while achieving low end-to-end latencies and inter-packet delay. Through ns2-based(More)
We address multi-radio networks, i.e., wireless networks where the nodes are equipped with multiple air interfaces. We analyze, both analytically and via simulation, various gains that the multi-radio environment can provide. First we investigate the gain in network connectivity by modeling the topology of a multi-radio network by a multigraph. The gain is(More)
We present a new distributed protocol for setting up and maintaining a backbone for multi-hop mobile networks with multiple radio interfaces. Our solution, termed MM-Backs, is effective in producing backbones with limited size, while being robust and reliable in the face of node mobility. We also describe how MM-Backs can be used to transparently support ad(More)
