Routing Over Multiple Technologies with RODENT

Abstract : Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) are limited by the characteristics of the Radio Access Technologies (RAT) they are based on. What we refer to as Multiple Technologies Network (MTN) is a network composed of nodes able to use several RAT. The management of the RAT and routes must be handled by the nodes themselves, in a local way, with a suited communication protocols stack. Each stack's layer has to take the technologies' heterogeneity of the devices into account. In this demonstration paper, we show the practical implementation of our custom routing protocol Routing Over Different Existing Network Technologies (RODENT), designed for MTN. It enables dynamic (re)selection of the best route and RAT based on the data type and requirements that may evolve over time. To assess its performance, we have implemented a functional prototype on real WSN hardware, Pycom FiPy devices.
