Abstract: A common operation in wireless ad hoc networks is the flooding of broadcast messages to establish network topologies and routing tables. The flooding of broadcast messages is, however, a resource consuming process. It might require the retransmission of messages by most network nodes. It is, therefore, very important to optimize this operation. In this paper, we first analyze the multipoint relaying (MPR) flooding mechanism used by the Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) protocol to distribute topology control (TC) messages among all the system nodes. We then propose a new flooding method, based on the fusion of two key concepts: distance-enabled multipoint relaying and connected dominating set (CDS) flooding. We present experimental simulations that show that our approach improves the performance of previous existing proposals.
