An Efficient Counter-Based Broadcast Scheme for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

  title={An Efficient Counter-Based Broadcast Scheme for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks},
  author={Aminu Mohammed and Mohamed Ould-Khaoua and Lewis M. Mackenzie},
In mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), broadcasting plays a fundamental role, diffusing a message from a given source node to all the other nodes in the network. Flooding is the simplest and commonly used mechanism for broadcasting in MANETs, where each node retransmits every uniquely received message exactly once. Despite its simplicity, it however generates redundant rebroadcast messages which results in high contention and collision in the network, a phenomenon referred to as broadcast storm… CONTINUE READING
