Technical Summary This informational document provides recommendations for jittering (randomly modifying timing) of control traffic transmissions in Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) routing protocols to reduce the probability of transmission collisions. Working Group Summary No dissent reported. Strong WG agreement is reported (see PROTO writeup). Several other WG documents contain references to this ID. Protocol Quality Ross Callon has reviewed this document for the IESG. Jitter is generally used in all routing protocol implementations that I know of.
