CCT can be used to form a sequence of clusters or Opportunistic Large Arrays (OLAs), where each cluster is defined by which nodes can decode the transmission from the previous cluster. SARL has demonstrated stable synchronization over an unlimited number of cluster hops. This sequential CCT technique is the basis of a novel reactive routing protocol called OLAROAD, illustrated in Figure, which has particular advantages in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), since it is contention-free for a single flow and does not require the establishment of any conventional multi-hop routes. SARL has demonstrated video transmission over such a route.
