Free registration required

Executive Summary

Different routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks have been evaluated with respect to different mobility models. Reference Point Group Mobility (RPGM) model applied for ad hoc network protocol performance evaluations have been studied here. In this paper an ant based colony routing protocol in mobile ad hoc networks is described. The algorithm consists of both reactive and proactive components. In a reactive path set up phase, multiple paths are built between the source and destination of a data session. During the course of the session, paths are continuously monitored and improved in a proactive way. The algorithm makes use of ant-like mobile agents establishing multiple stable paths between source and destination nodes.
