The IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol is the standard for wireless LANs; it is widely used in testbeds and simulations for wireless multihop ad hoc networks. However, this protocol was not designed for multihop networks. Although it can support some ad hoc network architecture, it is not intended to support the wireless mobile ad hoc network, in which multihop(More)
IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol is the standard for wireless LANs, it is widely used in testbeds and simulations in the research for wireless multi-hop ad hoc networks. However, this protocol was not designed for multi-hop networks. Although it can support some ad hoc network architecture, it is not intended to support the wireless mobile ad hoc network, in which(More)
Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) specifications utilize the multiple paths capabilities between the sender and receiver for retransmission of lost data chunks and as a backup in case of primary path failure. Under normal conditions, all data chunks are sent on the primary path chosen by the SCTP user during the transport connection initiation. In(More)
The IEEE 802.11 medium access control (MAC) protocol is a standard for wireless LANs, it is also widely used in almost all test beds and simulations for the research in wireless mobile multi-hop ad hoc networks. However, this protocol was not designed for multi-hop networks. Although it can support some ad hoc network architecture, it is not intended to(More)
This paper introduces a resource management application of a probabilistic-based ant routing algorithm for mobile ad hoc networks (ARAMA) that is inspired from the ant’s life [1]–[5]. Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are highly dynamic, self-configured and self-built networks. The goal of this paper is to present ARAMA ability to manage MANET’s resources by(More)
Wireless packet ad hoc networks are characterized by multi-hop wireless connectivity and limited bandwidth competed among neighboring nodes. In this paper, we investigate and evaluate the performance of several prevalent TCP algorithms in this kind of network over the wireless LAN standard IEEE 802.11 MAC layer. After extensively comparing the existing TCP(More)
In this paper, we present an adaptive buffering scheme for implementing intra-stream and inter-stream synchronization in real-time multimedia applications. The essence of the proposed scheme is to dynamically enforce equalized delays to incoming media streams, in order to piece-wise smooth the network delay variations and to synchronize the streams at the(More)
