What is it about?

A cross-layer routing protocol has been developed by integrating the PHY layer, MAC layer, Network layer, and Application layer for the selection of BEST FORWARDING NODE by considering multiple network parameters. The cross-layer design is to take advantage of the correlations between the layers. That is, increasing the vertical communications among layers and decreasing the parallel communications among nodes to reduce the waste of resources and improve the performance of the network.

Why is it important?

Our CWSN-eSCPM protocol has exploited multiple dynamic network parameters such as dynamic link quality, cumulative congestion degree, hop-counts, and packet velocity to perform BFN selection that eventually that enabled optimal BEST FORWARDING NODE selection for DEADLINE SENSITIVE and RELIABLE DATA TRANSMISSION even under dynamic topology and varying network condition over WSN based IoT. Thus it can be used for real-time applications. Some of the key market applications can be for industrial monitoring and control


Writing this article gave us a chance to explore hidden insights into the routing protocols. Where few of the concepts were explored in a much easier way, few took time and few more yet to be solved. Here we have tried to develop the routing protocol for Event-Driven and Deadline Sensitive Machine to Machine Communication based on Best Forwarding Node selection. Yet to incorporate the concept of Dynamic Power Management.
