Summary:
This research work deals with analyzing the performance of a new protocol for distributed network formation and re-formation in Bluetooth ad-hoc networks. The Bluetooth network may be a piconet or a scatternet consisting of a number of piconets. One of the salient features of this protocol is that, there is no leader election process involved. We can establish simultaneous multiple connections between masters and slaves. The delay in formation of the network is analyzed with respect to the number of devices in the network. Also, the network diameter, the number of piconets formed and the impact of device failures are analyzed. Simulation results show that the protocol handles the failures of the devices with minimum delay except at the time of failure of a master. The scope for further improvement of this protocol is also discussed.
