In this paper we present the set of factors in the physical layer that are relevant to the performance evaluation of the routing protocols. Such factors consist of signal reception, path loss, fading and interference considerations. With this in mind we adopt a numerical approach based on Finite State Markov Chain channel model to study the performance of(More)
In this paper, we present the set of factors in the physical layer that are relevant to the performance evaluation of the routing protocols. Such factors consist of signal reception, path loss, fading and interference considerations. Therefore it would be desirable for routing algorithms in wireless ad hoc networks, to be able to select paths that are more(More)

Routing protocols such as AODV use minimum hop count as the main metric for path selection. However, networks that require high Quality of Service (QoS) needs to consider several criteria's that could affect the quality of the chosen path in packet forwarding process. To improve the Quality of service, cross layer approach is proposed to attain(More)
