Data Dissemination in Multihop Wireless Networks: Theory and System Design
Data dissemination in multihop wireless networks is concerned with transporting application data and control messages from one to multiple end points in a geographic area. It is the cornerstone of many network management and data services such as resource discovery, time synchronization, software distribution, multimedia streaming in multihop wireless networks. Though widely used, the fundamental properties of data dissemination remain elusive. There are no satisfactory answers even to basic questions. In this project, we address the theoretical as well as system aspect of designing efficient data dissemination and aggregation protocols for multihop wireless networks.
