Özet

We propose a three layer software architecture for shared resource management in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). At the lowest layer, the Merging Clustering Algorithm (MCA) [11] partitions the MANET into a number of balanced clusters periodically. At the second layer, the Backbone Formation Algorithm(BFA) provides a virtual ring using the clusterheads found by MCA. Finally, an example resource management protocol which is a modified and scaled version of the Ricart-Agrawala algorithm implemented using the virtual ring structure is presented with the performance results.
