Abstract : Multi-hop wireless networks (MWN) consist of sets of mobile wireless nodes without the support of a pre-existing fixed infrastructure. Each host/node acts as a router and may arbitrary appear or vanish. This feature is a challenging issue for protocol design since protocols must adapt to frequent changes of network topologies. When dealing with sensor networks, the scalability also becomes a crucial aspect. In such large networks, we need not only to be able to route messages from any node to any other node but also to spread some information over the whole network. Till nowadays, it seems that these two properties have only been studied separately. In this report, we propose to use our existing cluster formation algorithm also to perform the broadcast operation.
