The technology of packet switching over multihop, multiple-access channels has evolved to the point at which its protocols can now support internetwork operation of medium-size networks whose nodes possess some degree of mobility. As regards the needs and challenges of the future operating environment, it is clear that these can be met only by enhancing the packet radio architecture and its protocols. We discuss several enhancements that allow the organization of large, dynamic networks that…

The DARPA packet radio network protocols

The algorithms are described and illustrated how the PRNET provides highly reliable network transport and datagram service, by dynamically determining optimal routes, effectively controlling congestion, and fairly allocating the channel in the face of changing link conditions, mobility, and varying traffic loads.

Adaptive forwarding in frequency-hop spread-spectrum packet radio networks with partial-band jamming

A computer program has been developed to simulate a frequency-hop packet radio network with partial-band jamming and interference due to other FH and narrowband radios, and results on throughput, delay, and end-to-end probability of success are presented.

A design concept for reliable mobile radio networks with frequency hopping signaling

This paper outlines those features that distinguish the High Frequency (HF) Intra Task Force (ITF) Network from other packet radio networks, and presents a design concept for this network that encompasses organizational structure, waveform design, and channel access.

Congestion based routing in packet radio networks

The authors develop a routing procedure that is sensitive to the performance of each link in the presence of multiuser interference, and selects the best links from any specified candidate set, and routes end-to-end traffic over the least congested paths.

Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Integration of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks in 4G Networks

The 4 G network architecture, its challenges and finally the use of MANET in 4G networks are discussed, which is well-suited for commercial and military applications which yield additional benefit of roaming.

An overview of algorithms to minimize energy consumption by adaptation of physical and link layer protocol parameters within a packet radio network is presented and a metric that optimizes performance as a function of the number of successful information bits at the output of the decoder per unit of energy transmitted is presented.

It is shown that the FM capture phenomenon with slotted ALOHA greatly improves the expected progress over the system without capture due to the more limited area of possibly interfering terminals around the receiver.
