This chapter describes the implementation and performance evaluation of a novel routing protocol called Pandora, which is designed for social applications. This protocol can be implemented in a broad number of devices, such as commercial wireless routers and laptops. It also provides a robust backbone integrating and sharing data, voice and video between computers and mobile devices. Pandora offers great performance with both fixed and mobile devices and includes important features such as: geographic positioning, residual battery energy monitoring, and bandwidth utilization. In addition, Pandora also considers the number of devices attached to the network. Pandora is experimentally evaluated in a testbed with laptops for the first stage and commercial wireless routers for the second stage. The main goal of Pandora is to provide a reliable backbone for social applications requiring a quality of service (QoS) guarantee. With this in mind, the following evaluation of Pandora considers the following types of traffic sources: transport control protocol (TCP), voice, video and user datagram protocol (UDP) without marks. Pandora is also compared with different queuing disciplines, including: priority queuing discipline (PRIO), hierarchical token bucket (HTB) and DSMARK. Finally, an Internet radio transmission is employed to test the network re-configurability. Results show that queuing the PRIO and HTB disciplines, which prioritizes UDP traffic, performed the best.
