Honey bee colonies demonstrate robust adaptive efficient
agent-based communications and task allocations without centralized
controls - desirable features in network design. This book
introduces a multipath routing algorithm for packet-switched
telecommunication networks based on techniques observed in bee
colonies. The algorithm, BeeHive, is dynamic, simple, efficient,
robust and flexible, and it represents an important step towards
intelligent networks that optimally manage resources.
The author guides the reader in a survey of nature-inspired
routing protocols and communication techniques observed in insect
colonies. He then offers the design of a scalable framework for
nature-inspired routing algorithms, and he examines a practical
application using real networks of Linux routers. He also utilizes
formal techniques to analytically model the performance of
nature-inspired routing algorithms. In the last chapters of the
book, he introduces an immune-inspired security framework for
nature-inspired algorithms, and uses the wisdom of the hive for
routing in ad hoc and sensor networks. Finally, the author provides
a comprehensive bibliography to serve as a reference for
nature-inspired solutions to networking problems.
This book bridges the gap between natural computing and computer
networking. What sets this book apart from other texts on this
subject is its natural engineering approach in which the challenges
and objectives of a real-world system are identified before its
solution, nature-inspired or otherwise, is discussed. This balanced
exposition of the book makes it equally suitable for
telecommunication network designers and theorists, and computer
science researchers engaged with artificial intelligence, agents,
and nature-inspired techniques.
