Paper: Combining Temporal and Spartial Partial Topolgy for MANET Routing – Merging OLSR and FSR

In this paper, we propose an extension to the Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) protocol, a proactive link-state routing protocol optimized for mobile ad-hoc networks, in-troducing temporal partial topology as a mechanism for re-ducing control traffic overhead. The extension is inspired from Fisheye State Routing (FSR), and complements the spatial partial topology of OLSR in extending scalability of manet routing protocols to large, dense networks. Through simulations, the paper justifies that through in-troducing temporal partial topology information in OLSR, the control traffic overhead in some manet configurations can be reduced.
