A Framework for Best-Effort Service Provisioning in Ad Hoc Networks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Published conference outputConference publication


This paper analyses the implementation of best-effort services over mobile ad hoc networks considering that, if no special transport protocols are used, a mobile ad hoc may be rendered useless to conventional applications. The paper develops an analytical model for the capacity of mobile ad hoc networks, which is able to indicate when the ad hoc network is effectively unusable. It was verified by a large scale simulation study. The simulation study also provides empirical rules that can be used to implement algorithms for real-time operation of mobile ad hoc networks. After validating our model, we provide a set of engineering rules for capacity management in such networks.
