Abstract : Multi-hop wireless ad-hoc networks are drawing more and more attention from both academic and industrial research. The lack of infrastructure makes those networks easy to deploy, thus they can potentially include a large number of nodes. Consequently, the scalability issue of the routing protocolused in such networks should be addressed. In large ad-hoc networks, with thousands of nodes and highly dense configurations, a simulation can take a long time to complete when using simulators like NS-2. In this paper, we propose a simple analytic model to study the scalability of the OLSR routing protocol. We focus on the protocol overhead and show that OLSR with the Fish-Eye extension can suppport large and dense networks. Our results show a good accuracy as compared with NS-2 simulations.
