Corridor Routing in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks

A new reactive strategy for multi-path routing in mobile ad-hoc networks is presented. Given a pair of communicating stations, the authors use the complete set of minimal-length paths - a so-called corridor - between the two. The potentially high number of paths within a corridor is efficiently installed by virtue of a new destination-discovery mechanism that is exclusively based on broadcast transmissions. Data streams are split and distributed over an entire corridor to exploit available network resources.
