This is my tcl script for simulating Antnet routing protocol in wired network running on ns-2.34 using 14 nodes.


Energy Consumption Analysis of AODV-UI Hybrid Routing Protocol under Various Mobility Models

December 26, 2011

This is our first draft joint research paper that we submitted to Networking 2012, The International Conference on Networking. This joint research is involved 2 universities, Universitas Indonesia and Universite de Haute Alsace-France. We hope that this paper could represent both universities in the conference.

Abstract – Mobile ad hoc networks (Manets) are characterized by mobile with portable and limited power sources. For more than one decade, Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol becomes attention and research focus on MANET widely. A lot of protocols proposed to improve and optimize AODV performance. Yet, many of those do not consider the needs of node accessing Internet via infrastructure network. In this paper, we proposed a optimize hybrid routing protocol based on AODV routing protocol, called AODV-UI. Our proposed protocol combines two mechanism such as gateway mode and reverse route mechanism with the aim to improve the performance of the hybrid protocol. We performed some evaluation of energy consumption calculation in our proposed hybrid protocol under various mobility models. We used random waypoint mobility models and reference point group mobility models with different speed and different number of source node to evaluate our protocol. The simulation result shows that our proposed protocol performance is lower in terms of energy consumption for random waypoint movement compare to the reference point group mobility model.

Keywords: Energy, gateway mode, mobility model, reverse route mechanism.

Autonomic Computing

September 25, 2011

About a week ago, my friend who take a double degree at UHA-France discussed about how to optimizing and securing AODV routing protocol. His Prof asked him to try ‘autonomic computing’. It’s sound like new to my ears. So, I’m trying to find out what is all about automatic computing?. Here is some of information about it. Let’s take a look.

Autonomic Computing refers to the self-managing characteristics of distributed computing resources, adapting to unpredictable changes whilst hiding intrinsic complexity to operators and users. Started by IBM in 2001, this initiative’s ultimate aim is to develop computer systems capable of self-management, to overcome the rapidly growing complexity of computing systems management, and to reduce the barrier that complexity poses to further growth. An autonomic system makes decisions on its own, using high-level policies; it will constantly check and optimize its status and automatically adapt itself to changing conditions. As widely reported in literature, an autonomic computing framework might be seen composed by Autonomic Components (AC) interacting with each other [1]. An AC can be modeled in terms of two main control loops (local and global) with sensors (for self-monitoring), effectors (for self-adjustment), knowledge and planner/adapter for exploiting policies based on self- and environment awareness.

Driven by such vision, a variety of architectural frameworks based on “self-regulating” autonomic components has been recently proposed. A very similar trend has recently characterized significant research work in the area of multi-agent systems. However, most of these approaches are typically conceived with centralized or cluster-based server architectures in mind and mostly address the need of reducing management costs rather than the need of enabling complex software systems or providing innovative services.

Autonomy-oriented computation is a paradigm proposed by Jiming Liu in 2001 that uses artificial systems imitating social animals‘ collective behaviours to solve hard computational problems. For example, ant colony optimization could be studied in this paradigm.[1]

Methods and Tools

Above is part of my survey of Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocols classification by methods and tools.


January 30, 2011

For my reseach project this semester, I tried to combine 2 protocols, AODV+ and R-AODV in NS-2.34. We called it AODV-UI. My goals is to combine gateway mode and reverse mode in route discovery mechanisme, so we’ve got a new variant AODV. Here the source code of AODV-UI. FYI, this aodv routing protocol is still in developing. And we’re working on it.

TCL Script for My NS-2 Project

January 19, 2011

This is my simple tcl script for our project research by using NS-2.34. In this project, we are going to combine 2 protocols, AODV+ and R-AODV,  our proposed protocol called AODV-UI.

Here is the tcl script.


Combining 2 Routing Protocols AODV

December 25, 2010

I’m trying to combine 2 protocols in ns-2. The protocols are r-aodv and aodv+. The goals is to get a new variant of routing protocol aodv that support for interconnection between mobile ad hoc network and node in infrastructure or Internet with link management failure. Protocol aodv+ provide gateway module and r-aodv provide reverse module for route management.

We need to modified some files, such as :

  • aodv.h
  • aodv_packet.h
  • aodv_rtable.h
  • ns-default.tcl
