Evaluating Wireless Proactive Routing Protocols Under Scalability and Traffic Constraints
In this paper, the authors evaluate and analyze the impact of different network loads and varying no. of nodes on distance vector and link state routing algorithms. They select three well known proactive protocols; Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) operates on distance vector routing, while Fisheye State Routing (FSR) and Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) protocols are based on link state routing. Further, they evaluate and compare the effects on the performance of protocols by changing the routing strategies of routing algorithms. They also enhance selected protocols to achieve high performance. They take throughput, End-To-End Delay (E2ED) and Normalized Routing Load (NRL) as performance metrics for evaluation and comparison of chosen protocols both with default and enhanced versions.
