Ad Hoc Networks: Routing, Qos and Optimization

ISBN: 978-1-84821-227-5
266 pages
January 2011, Wiley-ISTE
Ad Hoc Networks: Routing, Qos and Optimization (1848212275) cover image
This work presents ad hoc networks and their characteristics. It explains a new protocol of routing with QoS as well as its implementation in a network simulator and compares it with the existing protocols. The book discusses the principle of the load balancing, treats the approaches of optimization of energy, and proposes a new approach with an analytical model that gives a better performance.
