The broadcasting technique is used for route discovery during which the mobile node blindly rebroadcasts the first received route request packets without knowing the route to the destination thus causing broadcast storm
The proposed beacon-less broadcast (BL-CAST) protocol for VANETs uses slotted 1-persistence scheme  and store-carry-forward mechanism to solve the broadcast storm
and disconnected network problems, respectively.
This approach eliminates the broadcast storm
It uses chase packets to optimise the route request by reducing the redundancy of the route request in an effort to alleviate the broadcast storm
Unlike a peer-to-peer broadcast storm
, this tree model would make best use of the available bandwidth.
Because radio signals are likely to overlap with each other in a geographical area, a straightforward broadcasting by blind flooding cause serious redundancy, contention and collision referred to as the broadcast storm
In addition, the entire new version series provides a new feature with Network Broadcast Storm
Protection, and Port Break Alarm solutions, and offers both standard operating temperature models in -10 to 70 degree C, and Extended Operating Temperature models in -40 to 75 degree C.
2) Conventional broadcast protocols in VANET may cause broadcast storm
and fail to guarantee data transmission reliability.
In addition the ES-5224RM+ reportedly supports such features as SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), RMON, Broadcast Storm
Control to limit excess traffic, as well as Rapid Spanning Tree and VSM (Virtual Stacking Management) to support up to 16 switches via a single IP.
Flooding suffers from the notorious broadcast storm
An especially popular way to create havoc on a network these days is to deny access to services by creating an enormous amount of traffic, typically in the form of a broadcast storm
, on a network, commonly referred to as a distributed denial of service attack (DDOS).
