Inter-Vehicle Communication QoS Management for Disaster Recovery

Conference paper


The chapter deals with the QoS Management in a relief communication network able to manage the different wireless access technologies that the rescuers utilize. A QoS DiffServ-based architecture is proposed, which not only provides seamless QoS support over different access wireless technologies, but also exhibits a scalability property against the entry of any new access technology, since the new entry can be managed just adding a new specific QoS management module without requiring the upgrading of the ones already present in the system. A testbed for the performance evaluation of the proposed architecture has also been designed and the first results show the effectiveness of the proposal.
