In this thesis, a cross layer network design approach using effective MAC layer and optimal Network layer design has been proposed and implemented to improve the performance of the wireless networks. For this purpose, new MAC design principles have been proposed for effective scheduling and channel allocation where pipelining techniques proposed for improving the channel utilization. In addition, a new bandwidth allocation technique using partitioning has been proposed in this paper which allows varying the amount of traffic dynamically by increasing or decreasing the window size depending on the traffic. Finally, an ant colony based routing algorithm which uses cluster based routing has been proposed and implemented to match the newly designed MAC layer.

    It is challenging to deliver messages in a network where no instant end-to-end path exists, so called delay-tolerant network (DTN). Node encounters are used for message forwarding. In this paper, we propose a DTN routing protocol SMART. SMART utilizes the travel companions of the destinations...
