In this paper, we propose a cross-domain optimization (CDO) scheme, which optimizes the MANET topology and enables communication between multiple MANETs via LTE. Particularly, we first deploy a gateway to the center of gravity of all nodes in each MANET so that the network topology is optimized. Thus, the aggregation cost of intra-MANET traffic in the gateway is improved. Likewise, we then deploy an eNodeB in the center of gravity of all gateways to establish communication connections between

Then, the aggregation cost of inter-MANET traffic at eNodeBs can be largely reduced because of the minimization of the distances between eNodeBs and gateways, along with a significant performance improvement of inter-MANET communications owing to the superiority of LTE. Vis extensive simulations, we validate the effectiveness of our proposed scheme. Our experimental results demonstrate that the CDO scheme can greatly improve network performance. Finally, we discuss some other issues.
