Abstract

Efficient data dissemination in MANETs presents a significant challenge. Epidemic dissemination is introduced as a method to reliably spread information (context) across a network in which no direct path from source to destination can be secured. We propose a probabilistic broadcast scheme instead of the flooding technique, thus, reducing significantly the volume of message transmissions seen throughout the network. Simulation results prove the efficiency of such a scheme, which achieves full coverage of the network with disseminated context.
