In this paper, we address on-demand routing protocols by focusing on Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol and Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol in Wireless Mesh Network (WMN). We use the OPNET to establish the simulation models of DSR and AODV protocols in WMN. Simulation and results show that, DSR protocol based on dynamic source… (More)
The fiber-wireless (FIWi) access network not only leverages the technical merits of wireless and optical access networks, but also provides a potential opportunity for the design of survivable access networks. Previous works have studied the survivability of FiWi access network against network component failure by means of backup fiber deployment and… (More)
Cloud-integrated fiber-wireless (FiWi) networks inheriting advantages of optical and wireless access networks have a broad prospect in the future. As various component failures may occur in cloud-integrated FiWi networks, survivability is becoming one of the key important issues. It is necessary to provide survivability strategies for cloud-integrated FiWi… (More)
This paper focuses on the survivability of citywide hybrid Wireless-Optical Broadband Access Network (WOBAN). A protection scheme is proposed to tolerate the failure of multiple distribution fibers considering capacity and coverage problem. Simulation results show good performance of this scheme.
The hybrid Wireless-Optical Broadband Access Network (WOBAN) provides a new and promising architecture for broadband access network by combining the beneficial properties of wireless and optical access technologies. To avoid huge data loss, WOBAN needs to be designed with a high availability guarantee. The purpose of this paper is to protect the Passive… (More)
