Hybrid Scheme for Discovering and Selecting Internet Gateway in Mobile Ad Hoc Network
Global connectivity to Mobile Ad Hoc NETwork (MANET) is necessary to access the Internet services from the MANET. Nodes in a MANET that connect it to the Internet are called Internet gateways. Internet gateways need to be discovered and selected in an appropriate way to deliver more packets to the Internet and reduce end-to-end delay. Currently, there are proactive, reactive, and hybrid schemes to discover and select Internet gateways in MANET. However, these schemes do not scale well with the number of nodes, traffic load, and speed of the nodes in MANET.
