Cluster Based Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors proposed a cluster based routing protocol for mobile ad hoc network. It uses clustering's structure to decrease average end-to-end delay and improve the average packet delivery ratio. They simulate their routing protocol for nodes running the IEEE802.11 MAC. Results of their experiments show that the packet delivery ratio increases greatly and packet delay decreases significantly. In proposed method the routing is also done quickly and its error tolerance increases. The reason is that, routing is depended on the address of cluster heads. By failing any node in the route, its cluster head may use another node to forward packets (if available). This causes the error tolerance to enhance.
