Data Bit-Rate Instability in Wireless Multi-Rate Ad Hoc Networks

  • Crescenzio Gallo


  • Michele Perilli


Wireless Ad-hoc single-rate environments typically use a Distance Vector routing with a metric based on the minimization of the hop-count. In practice, the technique of minimizing the distance does not reward in the case of multi-rate, therefore it may be prefereable touse protocols privileging the link's transmission speed instead of the minimum distance. Our study aims toward the stability of the link in a wireless high mobility environment; we explore and hypothesize how to privilege, in the choice of routes, the stablest link.
