The SMesh wireless mesh network
Yair Amir, Claudiu Danilov, Raluca Musuăloiu-Elefteri, Nilo Rivera
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/1841313.1841314

Wireless mesh networks extend the connectivity range of mobile devices by using multiple access points, some of them connected to the Internet, to create a mesh topology and forward packets over multiple wireless hops. However, the quality of...

Probabilistic quorum systems in wireless Ad Hoc networks
Roy Friedman, Gabriel Kliot, Chen Avin
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/1841313.1841315

Quorums are a basic construct in solving many fundamental distributed computing problems. One of the known ways of making quorums scalable and efficient is by weakening their intersection guarantee to being probabilistic. This article explores...
