In this paper we describe the current state of the DARPA packet radio network. Fully automated algorithms and protocols to organize, control, maintain, and move traffic through the packet radio network have been designed, implemented, and tested. By means of protocols, networks of about 50 packet radios with some degree of nodal mobility can be organized and maintained under a fully distributed mode of control. We have described the algorithms and illustrated how the PRNET provides highly…

Future directions in packet radio architectures and protocols

This work discusses several enhancements that allow the organization of large, dynamic networks that can operate over multiple channels, adapt to varying conditions, and possess self-monitoring and self-control capabilities.

A congestion-control algorithm for receiver-directed packet-radio networks

A distributed, closed-loop, rate-based congestion control algorithm for regulating traffic flow rates in DARPA's Survivable Adaptive Networking (SURAN) packet-radio network that achieves max-min fairness in a large class of situations and is robust to node failures.

A routing algorithm for Multihop Packet Radio Networks with uni- and bi-directional links

The paper describes and analyzes an adaptive decentralized routing algorithm for frequency-hopping spread-spectrum packet radio networks and can be used in networks having both uni- and bidirectional radio links.

Simulation and comparison of communication protocols in ad hoc network

A comparison of three routing protocols using various metrics such as Delay, Jitter, Sequence number, throughput, mobility, scalability, number of packets dropped with 3-D comparison concludes that DSR performs fairly well with small and medium sized network.

Efficient routing in packet-radio networks using link-state information

We present the source-tree adaptive routing (STAR) protocol, which we show through simulation experiments to be far more efficient than the dynamic source routing (DSR) protocol, which has been shown

Network protocols for frequency-hop packet radios with decoder side information

Research in forwarding and routing protocols that are designed specifically for slow-frequency hop (SFH) packet radio networks in which some of the radios are subjected to excessive interference are described.

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.

Routing and Broadcasting in Ad-Hoc Networks

Two protocols are introduced - a routing and a broadcasting protocol - for ad-hoc networks which are based on a new paradigm enabled by the broadcast property of the wireless propagation medium and prove highly scalable in terms of number of nodes.
