A Light-Weight Service Discovery Protocol for Ad Hoc Networks

  title={A Light-Weight Service Discovery Protocol for Ad Hoc Networks},
  author={Ranwa Al Mallah and Alejandro Quintero},
Problem statement: In mobile ad hoc networks devices do not rely on a fixed infrastructure and thus have to be self-organizing. This gives ris e to various challenges to network applications. Existing service discovery protocols fall short of accommodating the complexities of the ad-hoc environment. However, the performance of distribute d s rvice discovery architectures that rely on a virtual backbone for locating and registering avail able services appeared very promising in terms of average… CONTINUE READING
