University Partnerships Power EION’s Adaptive Intelligent Routing Technology

Technical paper to be presented at the International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference

Ottawa, Canada - February 13, 2006; Based on research carried out at EION in partnership with local universities, a technical paper will be presented this summer at the International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing (IWCMC) Conference. Produced in part by the University of Ottawa and Carleton University, this paper is a key example of how EION is committed to driving research and pushing the limits of what is traditionally possible with wireless networks. Innovation such as this is what powers EION’s Adaptive Intelligent Routing (AIR) technology for Ad Hoc networks.

“It is thrilling to have the opportunity to collaborate with some very talented academic minds on this project,” Says EION’s Pramod Dhakal, co-author of the paper “since there are currently no agreed upon standards for Ad Hoc networks, the work carried out by EION today will help to shape those standards in the future.”

The paper titled, “Extending Network Knowledge: Making OLSR a Quality of Service Conducive Protocol” discusses Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR), a protocol used in mobile Ad Hoc networks. Due to the nature of Ad Hoc networks, each node in the network has an incomplete view of the overall network. Communicating information about each node’s battery life and link status creates additional overhead and in turn reduces the performance of the network. This paper discusses ways in which node information can be shared for optimal network performance. This kind of optimization is critical for deploying Ad Hoc networks with hundreds or thousands of nodes.

Results from the research are contributing towards enhancing EION’s Ad Hoc network technology. EION produces high speed, self-organizing Adaptive Intelligent Routers for applications such as remote community communications, battle management, emergency response coordination, and tough terrain communications in oil-field exploration. These robust units can be deployed in any configuration and will instantly create high bandwidth networks that have the ability to heal themselves in real-time.

The IWCMC Conference provides a dynamic forum for researchers and practitioners to present their state-of-the-art research and development in the areas of Wireless Networks, Mobile Computing, Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks, Communication Theory, Signal Processing, and Network Security and Assurance. The paper was co-authored by Pedro E. Villanueva-Peña, a student at the University of Ottawa; Thomas Kunz, a professor with the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University; and EION’s own Pramod Dhakal. The conference runs from July 3 to July 6, 2006 in Vancouver, Canada.
