Network hierarchy makes network protocols more scalable and robust, but also makes the network more complex and reduces performance. With routing protocols, hierarchy reduces overhead, routing table size, and convergence time, but can also cause sub-optimality (stretch) of the routing path length compared to the flat networks. With OSPF, for example, adding(More)
As future wireless networks become more diverse, there are important performance limits when network conditions become more extreme. An important performance limit in dense networks is the scalability of routing and of topology updates dissemination in particular. In previous work [16], the expected performance of diverse approaches to topology update(More)
The envisioned airborne networks (ANs) will be all IP-based to provide seamless connectivity and reachability among diverse aircrafts and unmanned air vehicles. Due to the dynamic nature and bandwidth/capacity limited channel condition of airborne networks, providing dynamic yet efficient network service always faces many challenges. In this paper, we(More)
