An admission control algorithm must coordinate between flows to provide guarantees about how the medium is shared. In wired networks, nodes can monitor the medium to see how much bandwidth is being used. However, in ad hoc networks, communication from one node may consume the bandwidth of neighboring nodes. Therefore, the bandwidth consumption of flows and(More)
—Current work in routing protocols for delay and disruption tolerant networks leverage epidemic-style algorithms that trade off injecting many copies of messages into the network for increased probability of message delivery. However, such techniques can cause a large amount of contention in the network, increase overall delays, and drain each mobile node's(More)
— Battery power is an important resource in ad hoc networks. It has been observed that in ad hoc networks, energy consumption does not reflect the communication activities in the network. Many existing energy conservation protocols based on electing a routing backbone for global connectivity are oblivious to traffic characteristics. In this paper, we(More)
We propose a new routing technique called Security-Aware ad hoc Routing (SAR) that incorporates security attributes as parameters into ad hoc route discovery. SAR enables the use of security as a negotiable metric to improve the relevance of the routes discovered by ad hoc routing protocols. We develop a two-tier classification of routing protocol security(More)
In mobile computing, power is a limited resource. Like other devices, communication devices need to be properly managed to conserve energy. In this paper, we present the design and implementation of an innovative transport level protocol capable of significantly reducing the power usage of the communication device. The protocol achieves power savings by(More)
Computer scientists have a role to play in combating global climate change. Global climate change is one of the most pressing problems of our time. Government agencies, universities, and businesses are starting to step up and invest in research, but even more change is needed, ranging from standards and policies to research innovations and new businesses.
— In this paper, we present MPARC (Multi-Priority Admission and Rate Control), a novel joint admission control and rate policing protocol for multi-priority ad hoc networks. MPARC is based on our novel bandwidth allocation model and guarantees that the throughput of admitted realtime flows will not decrease due to later arriving realtime flows with equal or(More)
