A new multipath routing protocol which is disjoint at the zone level is proposed. The proposed routing protocol is based on the hybrid Zone based Hierarchical Link State Routing Protocol (ZHLS). The proposed work establishes multiple zone disjoint paths between the source and the destination zones. The establishment of multiple paths between the source and the destination zones helps in increasing the network lifetime and also in reducing the network congestion and overhead. The proposed protocol is simulated using the Network Simulator (ns-2.34).
