A MANET (Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork) is defined as a wireless medium transmitting the message from source to destination without using any infrastructure framework. To achieve a group communication in MANET, multicasting is used. The process of integrating the MANET with multicasting improves the privacy level of users and widens the range of MANET for communication. To improve the MANET based communication more secure, the previous work used energy and bandwidth based fair queue algorithm for MANET. Another work used multicasting approach for an efficient communication between the nodes in the network. But the downside is that the efficiency and reliability of MANET based communication is low.
