Anycast routing for mobile networking

1999 / IEEE / 0-7803-5538-5


This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Anycast routing for mobile networking ' This paper considers the problem of locating and forwarding network traffic to any one of a set of distributed servers or service points-primarily in the context of mobile ad hoc networks. The advantages of providing such a capability in mobile networks through the use of anycast routing techniques at the network layer are discussed. The results of a simulation study are highlighted to demonstrate how anycast routing techniques can provide a one-to any communication capability with greater efficiency than traditional unicast based techniques. The simulation results also indicate anycast routing simplifies required configuration and management and reduces connection setup latency and overall message packet delay. Potential applications of anycast routing technology in military networks are presented and related issues are discussed.
