Issues to Address What we want: an effective protocol with low overhead How often should ExOR run? u Per packet is expensive u Use batches Who should participate the forwarding? u Too many participants cause large overhead When should each participant forward? u Avoid simultaneous transmissions What should each participant forward? u Avoid duplicate transmissions 9 CSE 222A – Lecture 18: Mesh Networking

Who should participate? A background process collects ETX information via periodic link-state flooding. The source chooses the participants (forwarder list) using ETX-like metric. u Only consider forward delivery rate » Why? u The source runs a simulation and selects only the nodes which transmit at least 10% of the total transmission in a batch. 10 CSE 222A – Lecture 18: Mesh Networking

Forwarders are prioritized by ETX-like metric to the destination The highest priority forwarder transmits when the batch ends The remaining forwarders transmit in prioritized order Question: How does each forwarder know it is its turn to transmit? u Assume other higher priority nodes send for five packet durations if not hearing anything from them When to forward?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
