Abstract

Scalability of routing protocols in wireless ad-hoc networks

Sjoerd Langkemper

With wireless devices increasing in popularity and ad-hoc wireless networks getting larger, scalable routing protocols are needed. There are already many routing protocols for ad-hoc wireless networks, but very few of them were conceived with scalability in mind. This paper will provide an overview of various routing techniques and consider their scalability. We will show that only the HSLS protocol is scalable without imposing trivial restrictions on the nodes.
