Abstract: Small-world network concept deals with the addition of a few Long-ranged Links (LLs) in a network to significantly bring down the average path length (APL) of the network. Existing small-world models do not consider the presence of multiple gateways and, therefore, we propose Multi-Gateway Aware LL addition Strategy (M-GAS). Further, the presence of multiple gateways brings forth the additional issue of traffic load balancing. We modify the M-GAS to propose Load balanced M-GAS (LM-GAS) for load balancing in ...
