Fairness based on backoff algorithms for enhancing manets performance: a comprehensive review

Saher Manaseer, Afnan Alawneh

Abstract


Recently the paradigm of achieving fairness in MANETs has become a significant issue in networks field. Researchers have been studying methods and proposing algorithms to maintain the best performance of the network as well as achieving fairness in utilizing resources. In MANETs nodes require fairness of accessibility to channel, bandwidth limit, quality of service, etc. many models were proposed in fairness management process to guarantee the allocation and utility fairly between nodes at the same time achieve the best output and performance as well as optimizing the power consumption and network resources. This paper aims at exploring these models and algorithms and focus on the way that fairness is defined, since there is no specific definition for fairness that all researchers agree on. Also this paper compares between the experiments and studies done in this field and evaluate the level they could improve and enhance in MANETs performance in terms of fairness.
