Infrastructure for Cross-Layer Designs Interaction
Abstract—The current system design of mobile ad hoc networks (MANET), derived from their traditional fixed counterparts, cannot fully meet the requirements inherent to the dynamic nature of such networks. Cross-layer (CL) designs, a modification of the classic protocol stack, are envisioned as a solution for this problem. Many CL design approaches are proposed, each for a different optimization purpose. Mobile terminals require a variety of optimizations that can be provided only by using different CL designs. Consequently, the coexistence and interaction of such designs needs attention. The lack of common interface and infrastructure among different CL designs, however, makes their interaction a significant problem. The proposed common interaction infrastructure is able to compensate for the negative effects introduced by particular CL design by using runtime information from all CL implementations involved in the system. This paper first presents an analysis of the weaknesses o...
