Evaluation of Three Geocasting Protocols for a MANET

A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a network consisting of a set of mobile nodes capable of communicating with each other without the assistance of base stations. The goal of a geo-casting protocol is to deliver data packets to a group of nodes that are located within a specied geographical area, i.e., the geocast region. In this paper, the authors evaluate the performance of three geocast routing protocols for a MANET via simulation: Location-Based Multicast, GeoGRID, and Geocast Adaptive Mesh Environment for Routing.
