In this paper, we propose a comprehensive solution for power control in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). Our solution emphasizes the interplay between the MAC and network layers, whereby the MAC layer indirectly influences the selection of the next-hop by properly adjusting the power of route request packets. This is done while maintaining network connectivity. Channel-gain information obtained mainly from overheard RTS and CTS packets is used to dynamically construct the network topology… CONTINUE READING
