Performance evaluation of routing protocols in wireless ad hoc networks with service differentiation

Yılmaz, Semra
An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the use of any fixed network infrastructure or centralized administration. Due to the limitations in the wireless environment, it may be necessary for one mobile host to enlist the aid of other hosts in forwarding a packet to its destination. In order to enable communication within the network, a routing protocol is needed to discover routes between nodes. The primary goal of ad hoc network routing protocols is to establish routes between node pairs so that messages may be delivered reliably and in a timely manner. The basic access method in IEEE 802.11 ad hoc networks is the Distributed Coordination Function (DCF), which provides a fair medium access. Enhanced Distributed Coordination Function (EDCF) has been developed to provide service differentiation among different traffic flows. In this thesis, we investigate the performance of the EDCF with routing protocols; Direct Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) by simulations.

Pehlivanlı, Aydın; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
The end to end Quality of Service (QoS) support for the dominating multimedia traffic in the contemporary computer networks is achieved by implementing schedulers in the routers and deploying traffic shapers. To this end, realistic modeling and simulation of these components is essential for network performance evaluation. The first contribution of this thesis is the design and implementation of a C++ simulator QueST (Quality of Service simulaTor) for this task. QueST is a modular cycle accurate simulator w...
Energy- aware task scheduling over mobile ad hoc networks
Bokar, Ali; Bozyiğit, Müslim; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) can be formed dynamically without the support of any existing infrastructure or any centralized administration. They consist of heterogeneous mobile nodes which are powered by batteries, move arbitrarily and are connected by wireless links. Battery energy limitation is one of the main challenges in the MANETs. Several hardware and software based techniques have been proposed in this field. Most of the previous studies have considered only the energy minimization of individual...

Vazifehdan, Javad; Prasad, R. Venkatesha; Onur, Ertan; Niemegeers, Ignas (Elsevier BV, 2011-10-27)
Although many energy-aware routing schemes have been proposed for wireless ad hoc networks, they are not optimized for networks with heterogeneous power supplies, where nodes may run on battery or be connected to the mains (grid network). In this paper, we propose several energy-aware routing algorithms for such ad hoc networks. The proposed algorithms feature directing the traffic load dynamically towards mains-powered devices keeping the hop count of selected routes minimal. We unify these algorithms into...
Performance analysis of a power aware routing protocol for ad hoc networks
Yazıcı, Mehmet Akif; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, performance of the Contribution Reward Routing Protocol with Shapley Value (CAP-SV), a power-aware routing protocol for ad hoc networking is analyzed. Literature study on ad hoc network routing and ower-awareness is given. The overhead induced by the extra packets of the redirection mechanism of CAP-SV is formulized and the factors affecting this overhead are discussed. Then, the power consumption of CAP-SV is analytically analized using a linear power consumption model. It is shown that CAP...
Minimum concave cost multicommodity network design
Say, Fatih; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
Minimum Concave Cost Multicommodity Network Design Problem arises in many application areas, such as transportation planning, distributed energy system and especially both circuit and packet switching backbone network design. Exact concave optimization algorithms have been developed, but these methods are applicable if the network size is small. Therefore, these problems are usually solved by non-exact iterative methods. In this thesis work, methods proposed for circuit switching and packet switching networ...
