Assessment Technologies of Communication Quality in MANET Networks
This paper assesses the communication quality that can be achieved in MANET networks. The structure of the MANET protocols is analysed in detail, and the communication and routing subsystems are highlighted. A proprietary MANET protocol has been developed which is based on neighbourhood routing (NM). The communication subsystem is implemented at the service level using the original communication packages. The communication quality of the developed protocol is compared with the open80211s implementation of the Hybrid Wireless Mesh Protocol (HWMP). In order to avoid packet loss, starting with the second hops of the wireless route, the use of 2 network wireless adapters and different Wi-Fi subchannels is proposed. The maximum achievable communication quality was found when replacing wireless communication channels with wired ones.
