With the fast growing technology, man started relying more on fast and measurable computing, such as wireless networks. The usage of wireless networks in local regions and geographic regions using (MANETs) has increased. Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks are self-configuring infrastructure less network of mobile devices connected by wireless. Generally, wireless networks work better in local regions than geographic regions. Multicasting the data in mobile Ad-hoc networks is simpler in local regions whereas the maintenance of multicast structure in dynamic network topology such as geographic regions (large group size networks) is complex since transmission of data in packets is not infallible.
