In this paper the authors propose a connection balanced routing in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) using backbone update messages. Virtual-Backbone (VB) construction is very familiar, to overcome broadcast storm problem in wireless networks. In real time, during the movement of nodes in MANET, more number of nodes added in a particular node (say a VB node), it leads poor quality of service in multi-hop wireless environment. To overcome this problem connection balanced is required; in terms of reduction of nodes attachment in a backbone node and attach these nodes with new VB, to maintain connectivity.
