Implementation of a Multi-modal Acoustic-Optical Underwater Network Protocol Stac

We describe the implementation of a protocol stack
for multi-modal underwater networks, where multiple physical
layer technologies are available to each node. This condition
implies greater flexibility, by allowing each node to decide how
to serve specific transmissions and traffic classes depending
on system, quality-of-service, and application-specific policies
implemented in a controller. In this paper, we describe the imple-
mentation details of an acoustic/optical multi-modal underwater
network stack through the DESERT Underwater framework.
Our system services various traffic types with different quality-of-
service demands, and allows mobility. Extensive numerical results
show that our multi-modal system offers greater throughput,
robustness to mobility and traffic types, and much lower service
delay.
