The Distribution of Route Search Packet Flows in Ad Hoc Networks
AbstractThe amount of route search (RS) packets in Ad Hoc networks depend on the usage of network node location data and signal strength levels for defining response zones and sending RS packets. In case when route response zones are not restricted in every next step of the routing process, the number of generated RS packets grows according to the geometric progression. When node location data and signal strength level is used, the number of RS packets generated at the next routing step increases according to the arithmetic progression or may be constant. It has been shown in the paper that response zone restrictions help to reduce the number of generated RS packets significantly in high density network, while exploiting the location data and signal strength level in lower density network is less efficient.
