Implementation of Adaptive Delay Multicast Routing Protocol
A Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET) represents a system of wireless mobile nodes that can freely and dynamically self organize into arbitrary and temporary network topologies without the presence of any fixed infrastructure. High degree of mobility and Limited bandwidth are two important issues for routing protocols in MANETs. Multicasting can improve the efficiency of the wireless link when sending multiple copies of messages by exploiting the inherent broadcast property of wireless transmission. Routing protocols for MANETs have traditionally used shortest path routing to obtain paths to destinations, and do not consider traffic load or delay as an explicit factor.
