Distributed Pruning Methods for Stable Topology Information Dissemination in Ad Hoc Networks
MetadataShow full item record
We propose a component based modelling and design strategy for the Neighborhood Discovery Component (NDC) and the Selector of Topology Information to Disseminate Component (STIDC) of proactive ad hoc routing protocols. The NDC design strategy focuses on limiting the detection time and removing time of network good and bad links respectively. The STIDC strategy makes sure that only stable links with long life time are selected as the topology information that will be broadcasted in network. We provide analytic performance analysis methods for both components and show that using the proposed methodologies we can significantly reduce the overhead of information dissas OLSR.
