Advanced Routing Protocols for Wireless Networks
FOCUS Series in Networks and Telecommunications
Publication Date: May 2014 Hardback 160 pp.
The main concepts of routing applied to wireless networking environments are introduced in this book, focusing on networks that can be deployed within an urban scenario – which is vertiginously gaining importance given the recent efforts towards smart cities.
The authors review physical medium characteristics and the main underlying access methods, before moving on to introduce the main metrics and protocols used for routing in ad hoc, mesh, vehicular, sensor, and delay- and disruption-tolerant networks. Throughout the book the main differences between the approaches are discussed.
It is particularly of interest to engineers and both undergraduate and graduate students in engineering and computer science.
