Cross-Layer Design for Data Accessibility in Mobile Ad hoc Networks


Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) are becoming an integral part of the ubiquitous computing and communication environment, providing new infrastructure for multimedia applications such as video phone, multimedia-on-demand, and others. In order to access multimedia information in MANET, Quality of Service (QoS) needs to be considered, such as high success rate to access multimedia data, bounded end-to-end delay, and others. In this paper, we present a data accessibility service for a group of mobile users to access desired data with high success rate. This accessibility service is only possible if we utilize advanced data advertising, lookup and replication services, as well as a novel predictive location-based QoS routing protocol in an integrated fashion. Using cross-layer design, we illustrate how the QoS routing protocol assists data advertising, lookup and replication services to achieve high data access success rate. Simulation results have shown that our design is successful in a dynamic MANET
