METHOD FOR DYNAMICALLY SCHEDULING CLUSTERING OPERATION

[Category : - SOFTWARES- Computers and computer accessories - Telecommunications]
[Viewed 213 times]

An improved method of dynamically scheduling clustering operations in a network includes determining if one or more conditions for reclustering are met before deciding to perform the next reclustering operation. Therefore, to achieve load balancing for a network, the method of dynamically scheduling clustering operations schedules reclustering operations only at required times. This may be based on various factors such as remaining node energy, node movements, the number of nodes in the clusters, and/or other conditions of the nodes in the network. Therefore, by, tuning the reclustering time dynamically, the method effectively controls the clustering overhead throughout the network lifetime and handles the mobility of nodes.
