A Network Layer Protocol for UANs to Address Propagation Delay Induced Performance Limitations
MetadataShow full item record
This paper provides a description of a novel network layer protocol for underwater acoustic networking (UAN) that provides a mechanism for network control and management enabling the implementation of responsive, self-configuring, adaptable, and scalable networks whose performance are predictable. The protocol draws from the demonstrated efficiencies of multi-protocol labeled switching, dynamic source routing, and multi-constraint based resource allocation schemes. The paper describes the expected benefits of establishing full duplex functionality between network nodes and presents some of the preliminary simulation findings regarding the viability of autonomously determining the network topology utilizing the full duplex node connections.
