Routing for Wireless Multi-Hop Networks: Unifying Features
- 750 Downloads
Wireless multi-hop networks share some routing features based on the fact that they all follow the multi-hopping paradigm. In this chapter, we follow a component-based approach for breaking down a routing protocol into some core and auxiliary components. We discuss the core components that are fundamental for any wireless multi-hop routing protocol along with some auxiliary components that can be adopted to achieve a specific design goal. Dependency and relationships among the components are elaborated as well. Finally, we propose a generic routing model that can be inherited for the design of any wireless multi-hop routing protocol.
