Improving the Validity & Credibility of Ad Hoc Network Simulation Studies

Arta Doci 1, * 
Abstract : In order to meet our goal we have provided the research community with two tools: (a) a real mobility model (b) an interconnected traffic with the real mobility model. We show that under real mobility and interconnected traffic performance and mobility metrics need to be re-thought. Therefore, we propose availability as a new performance metric that is defined as the ratio between the number of packets sent by the source and the number of packets received by the destination while the destination is active. Based on the availability metric, protocol performance is dependent on the traffic sent by the type of the nodes (stationary vs. mobile nodes). Furthermore, to improve the efficiency of the current mobility metric algorithms and incentive ad hoc protocols, we use the Maximum Node Degree mobility metric, which has got little attention in the research.
