Multi-rate feature is an important advance in wireless communications. It enables wireless devices to operate at high data rate when the channel condition is sufficiently good. Existing ad hoc routing protocols can not perform very well in the multi-rate ad hoc networks because they generally assume that bandwidth of different links are identical in the system. One straightforward solution to this issue is to use special routing metrics in routing algorithm, which is called routing approach… CONTINUE READING
