Abstract : Link-state routing remains as one of the most challenging issues in ad hoc networking, due to the special conditions and requirements that hold in such networks, which cannot be handled by classical routing protocols. In the last decade, several efforts have been deployed either to design new routing solutions adapted to ad hoc conditions, either to extend existing solutions for wired networks to the domain of wireless mobile scenarios. This paper elaborates on the latter alternative, focusing on the standard OSPF MANET extension RFC 5449. It analyzes the impact and interest of the persistency principle to the main OSPF MANET operations, in particular the adjacency synchronization and the other operations that relate to it (flooding and route construction). The presented results show that such persistent approach is appropriate for managing adjacencies in the context of RFC 5449, and significant improvements might be achieved by extending the persistent principle into the topology selection mechanism.
