Cross Layer Based Congestion Control Technique for Reliable and Energy Aware Routing in MANET
Since the congestion problem is prevalent in transport, data link and network layer in Mobile Ad hoc networks, a cross layer based congestion control technique is necessary to overcome the congestion problem. In this paper, the authors propose a cross-layer based technique to overcome congestion that occurs in MAC and transport layer in MANET. The proposed technique is applied over Ad hoc On demand Multipath Reliable and Energy Aware QoS Routing Protocol (AOMP-REQR). The technique of Additive Increase and Multiplicative Decrease (AIMD) is applied for rate based congestion control of transport layer protocol.
