Inter-domain routing for MANETs (Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks) draws increasing attention because of military and vehicular applications. The existing Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the de facto inter-domain routing protocol for the Internet. But BGP is not applicable to MANETs because the BGP design is based on a static Internet which does not support dynamic discovery of members, and cannot scale to mobile, dynamic topology environments. The proposed Geo-based Inter-Domain Routing (GIDR) protocol obtains efficient communications among MANETs and achieves scalability in large networks by using geo-routing packet forwarding scheme and clustering technique.
