dc.description.abstract Designing new protocols for Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) is a great challenge due to their distributed and self organized nature. Though, aspects of approved algorithms for hierarchical topographies may be carried over to these flat networks. The IEEE 802.11 protocol supports ad hoc networks in small scale applications, but its performance in large scale environments is still under investigation. Besides the Distributed Coordination Function (DCF), the Timer Synchronization Function (TSF) can be significantly improved in order to increase the performance in large scale multihop networks. This paper presents systematic extensions to the TSF that allow increasing the overall reliability and disburdening the network load at the same time. The presented scheme may be tailored to specific applications and even supports mobile stations and herewith MANETs. en_AU
