Packet Delay and Energy Consumption in Non-homogeneous Networks

  title={Packet Delay and Energy Consumption in Non-homogeneous Networks},
  author={Omer H. Abdelrahman and Erol Gelenbe},
  journal={Comput. J.},
This paper studies whether a packet will ultimately succeed in reaching a given destination, how long this will take and how much energy may be expended, in the context of a network with imperfect routing tables and non-homogeneous network characteristics. It also investigates the effect of noncooperative routers that may actually choose to drop certain packets if they view them to be dangerous for destination nodes, as when packets may be carrying worms, viruses or malware, and when certain… CONTINUE READING
