The growing interest in Mobile Ad Hoc Network techniques has resulted in many routing protocol proposals. Scalability issues in ad hoc networks are attracting increasing attention these days. In this paper, the authors will discuss the routing protocols that address scalability. The routing protocols they intend to include in the survey fall into three categories: flat routing protocols, hierarchical routing approaches, and GPS augmented geographical routing schemes. With the advance of the wireless communication technologies In this paper, different multicast routing protocol namely Hypercube based Team Multicast Routing Protocol (HTMRP) has been proposed to address the scalability in mobile ad hoc networks.
