An Improved MAC Protocol Stack for MANETíS

  • Dr.C. Chandralekha


This paper deals with design goals to provide flawless relation to the Internet when mobile hosts roam between MANETs and to reach load-balancing routing when mobile hosts have multiple gateways offered. We address three issues in this paper namely IP address resolution, mobility management under NAT structure, and load-balancing routing. Mobile IP and NAT traversal are adopted to provide seamless wandering capability in private networks. A load-balancing direction-finding protocol was implemented to reduce the bottleneck problem. A prototype is implemented on Windows platform to verify our architecture and test results do show the benefit of load-balancing steering.
