Extended Desynchronization for Multi-Hop Topologies

  title={Extended Desynchronization for Multi-Hop Topologies},
  author={Clemens M{\"u}hlberger and Deepika Kolla},
Desynchronization is a biologically inspired primitive [8] for periodic but temporary exclusive access to a shared resource, like the transmission medium. In this paper, we recapitulate the single-hop desynchronization algorit hm DESYNC [5, 2, 6] for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and identify its lack of handling hidden nodes in multi-hop envi ronments. We explain in detail our decentralized and selforganizing multi-hop extension EXTENDED-DESYNC, solving the hidden node problem although it… 
Desynchronization in Multi-Hop Topologies : A Challenge
This paper compares the characteristics of single-hop and multi-hop topologies – with respect to the primitive of desynchronization, and analyzes one special multi-hops topology in detail, which not only shows the complexity of a multi- Hop desynchronized, but also provides new opportunities to support all sorts of multi-Hop topologies with reduced overhead for the neighboring information.
On the Pitfalls of Desynchronization in Multi-hop Topologies
This paper describes the experience when extending a single-hop MAC protocol based on the primitive of desynchronization for its usage within multi-hop topologies and presents the solution of a self-organized MAC protocolbased on the basic of des synchronization for multi-Hop topologies.
Design of a Self-Organizing MAC Protocol for Dynamic Multi-Hop Topologies
This work presents the development of a self-organizing MAC protocol for dynamic multi-hop topologies, which is the first and only MAC protocol to the best of the knowledge and may be an appropriate starting base for additional network services, like time synchronization or routing.
Stable Desynchronization for Wireless Sensor Networks: (I) Concepts and Algorithms

This paper describes the experience in evaluating the self-organizing MAC protocol EXTENDED-DESYNC for multi-hop wireless networks and makes use of both simulation models and real-world testbeds, to compare the results.
MD-MAC: A Distributed TDMA Protocol Based on Desynchronization for Multi-Hop Topologies
A MAC protocol based on the idea of Desynchronization to solve the problem caused by stale information and lay down the adjustment rule to allocate the communication resource and a scheme which the network can detect collision in a self-adapting way is proposed.
Adaptive Strategy to Change Firing Phases of Collided Nodes in Extended-Desync TDMA-Based MANETs
A mathematical model is derived to evaluate the problem due to collisions of firing messages for moving nodes and it is shown that the proposed method achieved much faster resolution and higher slot utilization in collision situations than other Ext-Desync-based schemes.
Bio-Inspired Resource Allocation Scheme for Multi-Hop Networks
It is shown that MH DSYNC can resolve the hidden-node problem effectively and verify that each node shares resources fairly among its neighboring nodes and results show that MH DESYNC algorithm achieves better performance than CSMA/CA algorithm in terms of throughput.

The results suggest that DESYNC has significant potential as a lightweight method for providing non-overlapping variable-sized slots in ad-hoc multi-hop settings and the performance and efficiency of resource allocation in simulation.
Decentralized Scattering of Wake-Up Times in Wireless Sensor Networks
This paper proposes a fully decentralized wake-up scattering algorithm that uniformly spreads wake- up times of nearby sensors and shows improvements in responsiveness to one-hop queries from a mobile base station, sensing coverage for event detection, and latency in multi-hop communication.
