Optimized Stateless Broadcasting in Wireless Multi-Hop Networks
— In this paper we present a simple and stateless broadcasting protocol called Dynamic Delayed Broadcasting (DDB) which allows locally optimal broadcasting without any prior knowledge of the neighborhood. As DDB does not require any transmissions of control messages, it conserves critical network resources such as battery power and bandwidth. Local optimality is achieved by applying a principle of Dynamic Forwarding Delay (DFD) which delays the transmissions dynamically and in a completely distributed way at the receiving nodes ensuring nodes with a higher probability to reach new nodes transmit first. An optimized performance of DDB over other stateless protocols is shown by analytical results. Furthermore, simulation results show that, unlike stateful broadcasting protocols, the performance of DDB does not suffer in dynamic topologies caused by mobility and sleep cycles of nodes. These results together with its simplicity and the conservation of network resources, as no control me...
