Due to the dynamic topology, limited resources and unpredictable channel conditions, the strict layered design is not flexible enough to cope with the wireless ad hoc and sensor network environment. This paper presents an in-depth analysis of difficulties in cross-layer design and the latest cross-layering approaches for wireless ad hoc and sensor networks… CONTINUE READING
