A Survey of Proactive Multicast Routing Protocols for Mobile Adhoc Network
Mobile ad hoc network is a recently emerging branch of wireless communication technology. In such dynamic wireless network selection of the appropriate best efficient routing protocol among the large number of available protocols, as per the network requirement is a major challenge. This paper mainly has its focus on a smaller domain of routing protocols in MANET's, Proactive Multicast Routing Protocols. The paper aims at providing criteria according to which these protocols can be compared and classified.
