Evaluating and Modeling Proactive Routing Protocols with Route Stabilities Using 802.11 DCF and 802.11e EDCF
This paper contributes modeling links and route stabilities in three diverse wireless routing protocols. For this purpose, the authors select three extensively utilized proactive protocols; Destination-Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV), Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) and Fish-eye State Routing (FSR). They also enhance the performance of these protocols by modifying their default parameters. All experiments for evaluating and comparing the performance of protocols are performed in NS-2. Optimization of these routing protocols is done via performance metrics; average Throughput, End to End Delay (E2ED) and Normalized Routing Load (NRL) achieved by them. Default routing protocols DSDV, OLSR and FSR and compared and evaluated with modified versions named as M-DSDV, M-OLSR and M-FSR.
