A NOVEL Approach for Efficient Routing in AOMDV Protocol
A common characteristic of all popular multipath routing algorithms in mobile ad-hoc networks, such as AOMDV, is that the end to end delay is reduced by utilization of parallel paths. The competition between the neighboring nodes for obtaining a common channel in those parallel paths is the reason for end to end delay increment. In fact, due to medium access mechanism in wireless networks, such as CSMA/CA, data transmissions even through two Node-Disjoint paths are not completely independent and each path will affect the other one. In this paper, the authors have modified the AODV protocol which results in selection of zone-disjoint paths, to the extent feasible, and as a result they achieve less end to end delay.
