Abstract

New production environments will demand extensive exchange of communication information. Wireless communications will provide effective means to meet these demands. However, it is important that effective protocols are available to deliver the required QoS. Cross-layer algorithms are potential candidates that exhibit interesting features compared to monolithic traditional protocols. This paper analyses the performance of cross-layer enabled OLSR protocols compared to a hierarchical counterpart. The paper demonstrates that in the scenario defined cross-layer approach outperforms the intra-system optimization capabilities compared to a hierarchical OLSR enabled protocol.
