On the Broadcast Storm Problem in Ad hoc Wireless Networks
Routing protocols developed for ad hoc wireless networks use broadcast transmission to either discover a route or disseminate information. More specifically, reactive routing protocols has to flood the network with a route request (RREQ) message in order to find an optimal route to the destination. Several applications developed for vehicular ad hoc wireless networks (VANET), which is a subset of MANET, rely on broadcast to propagate useful traffic information to other vehicles located within a certain geographical area. However, the conventional broadcast mechanism may lead to the so-called broadcast storm problem. In this paper, we explore how serious the broadcast storm problem is in both MANET and VANET by examining how broadcast packets propagate in a 2-dimensional open area and on a straight road or highway scenarios. In addition, we propose three novel distributed broadcast suppression techniques; i.e., weighted p-persistence, slotted 1-persistence, and slotted ppersistence sche...
