Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) is a promising communication paradigm for the emerging collaborative environments, which do not need an underlying stable, centralized routing and management infrastructure. In this paper, the authors propose a particular approach for the design of a mobile routing protocol focused on the stability (measured as the transmission intensity change rate) of network links instead of speed and path length, and simulate its adoption in a random network analyzing the corresponding communication graphs.
