Virtual Network Configuration for a Rapidly Deployable Network


In order to make RDRN truly rapidly deployable, configuration at all layers has to be a dynamic and continuous process. Configuration can be a function of such factors as load, distance, capacity and permissible topology, all of which are constantly changing in a mobile environment. A Time Warp [17] based algorithm is used to anticipate configuration changes and speed the reconfiguration process.
