Managing Complexity of Designing Routing Protocols Using a Middleware Approach [chapter]

Cosmina Ivan, Vasile Dadarlat, Kalman Pusztai
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The aim of this paper is to present a middleware-based approach for designing and managing routing protocols based on the idea of decomposing routing protocols into fundamental building blocks and identifying  ...  the role of each component, and also to propose a framework for composing dynamically new routing protocols making use of a distributed object platform.  ...  A New Approach for Designing Protocols A routing protocol allows the communication nodes of different networks to exchange information in order to update and maintain routing tables.  ...

Context-aware routing in wireless mesh networks

Peizhao Hu, Marius Portmann, Ricky Robinson, Jadwiga Indulska
2008 Proceedings of the 2nd ACM international conference on Context-awareness for self-managing systems - CASEMANS '08  
We propose adopting a reconfigurable context management system to simplify the task of accessing a variety of information required by adaptive routing protocols and to hide the low-level complexities of  ...  In addition, we show how our middleware supports faulttolerance of various information failures, freeing protocol developers to concentrate on improving the routing mechanism and the metric information  ...  This approach frees protocol designers from concerns about low-level information access complexities and allows them to concentrate on the actual routing mechanism or the design of the routing metric.  ...

Layered view of QoS issues in IP-based mobile wireless networks

Haowei Bai, Mohammed Atiquzzaman, David J. Lilja
2006 International Journal of Communication Systems  
Furthermore, QoS provisioning is required at various layers of the IP protocol stack to guarantee different types of service requests, giving rise to issues related to cross-layer design methodology.  ...  This paper reviews issues and prevailing solutions to performance enhancements and QoS provisioning for IP services over mobile wireless networks from a layered and cross-layer design point of view.  ...  Please refer to [7] for a detailed analysis of transport layer design approach in mobile wireless networks.  ...

A common API for hybrid group communication

Matthias Wahlisch, Thomas C. Schmidt, Georg Wittenburg
2009 2009 IEEE 34th Conference on Local Computer Networks  
First, we explore the problem space of designing a protocol stack for hybrid group communication that covers structured P2P networks.  ...  Recent efforts are made to construct a globally accessible group communication service by a simultaneous use of network and application layer multicast.  ...  This approach of a universal routing protocol as part of the middleware layer may conflict with the forwarding strategy pursued by services above CAST.  ...

We also overview a variety of related middleware and argue that no existing approach provides all the management tools required by sensor network applications.  ...  Often the combination of characteristics from the environment and application drive the design of the middleware.  ...  However, to make these protocols more useful, application designers would benefit from a middleware that encapsulates the protocols, providing a high-level interface.  ...
