Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) are widely employed in many wireless networks, e.g. tactical area networks, due to its several advantages. Most of the MANETs must meet certain quality of service requirements such as high link reliability, low energy consumption and high throughput. However, major issues like interference dramatically degrade the service quality. In order to provide a high quality of service, an efficient control protocol, which handles the interference problem in neighborhood maintenance while providing the energy efficiency is required. Although there are many neighbor discovery and maintenance protocols for MANETs, there is a need for distributed schedule-based control communication protocols avoiding the interference problem at the same time supporting the mobility and low power consumption. To that end, we introduce an energy efficient control communication protocol which concerns neighbor discovery as well as neighborhood maintenance and solves the interference problems at the same time supporting mobility. Our proposed protocol uses increased communication transmission power levels in certain intervals. To evaluate our protocol, we conduct a set of experiments with highly dense and mobile networks. Simulation results show that our protocol provides high link reliabilities and energy efficiency while providing high throughputs.


A novel architecture proposal for multi-access management in IP-based future wireless networks
Altundaş, Süleyman; Buyurman, Baykal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
As the wireless networking technologies advance rapidly, providing mobile users with roaming freely in heterogeneous wireless access domains, the need for multi access arises. This thesis proposes a novel Mobile Multi-Access Management Architecture (MMA-IP) for IP-based future wireless networks. The thesis includes a proposal for a PhD study towards establishing such an architecture. MMA-IP enables mobile users to utilize multiple access domains synchronously and to switch seamlessly between different acces...
A Novel Link Quality Assessment Method for Mobile Multi-Rate Multi-Hop Wireless Networks
Zhou, Jinglong; Jacobsson, Martin; Onur, Ertan; Niemegeers, Ignas (2009-01-01)
Accurate and fast wireless link quality assessment (LQA) for wireless channels would bring huge benefits for mobile multi-hop and multi-rate wireless ad hoc and sensor networks in the form of improved end-to-end performance. In this paper, we propose a novel LQA method based on cross-layer information. The method is implemented in a real test-bed, which is based on IEEE 802.11b/g, and achieved a significant LQA improvement up to 50% in mobile scenarios without introducing overhead. The effectiveness of accu...
An Energy Aware Fuzzy Unequal Clustering Algorithm for Wireless Sensor Networks
Bagci, Hakan; Yazıcı, Adnan (2010-07-23)
In order to gather information more efficiently, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are partitioned into clusters. The most of the proposed clustering algorithms do not consider the location of the base station. This situation causes hot spots problem in multi-hop WSNs. Unequal clustering mechanisms, which are designed by considering the base station location, solve this problem. In this paper, we introduce a fuzzy unequal clustering algorithm (EAUCF) which aims to prolong the lifetime of WSNs. EAUCF adjusts t...
The performance and efficiency of envelope elimination and restoration transmitters for future multiple-input multiple-output wireless local area networks
Nesimoglu, T.; Parker, S. C. J.; Morris, K. A.; McGeehan, J. P. (Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2008-03-01)
The inefficiency of contemporary power amplifiers ( PAs), when operating in their linear region, is a major obstacle to mobile operation of wireless local area networks ( WLANs) based on IEEE 802.11n. Therefore the use of more efficient envelope elimination and restoration ( EER) transmitter architectures is considered. In addition to high efficiency it is also necessary to satisfy the spectral mask and achieve satisfactory link- level performance. Link- level simulations of a contemporary WLAN PA show that...
A Novel SDN Dataset for Intrusion Detection in IoT Networks
Sarica, Alper Kaan; Angın, Pelin (2020-11-04)
The number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the use cases they aim to support have increased sharply in the past decade with the rapid developments in wireless networking infrastructures. Despite many advantages, the widespread use of IoT has also created a large attack surface frequently exploited by cyber criminals, requiring real-time, automated detection and mitigation of various attacks in the high-volume network traffic generated. Software-defined networking (SDN) and machine learning (ML) base...
