Minimizing the Overhead in the Terminode Routing Protocol Minimizing Protocol in Mobile Adhoc Networks
In this paper, the authors present an approach of using Optimized Link State Routing Protocol (OLSR) in the terminode routing method. Terminode routing uses the combination of location based routing i.e. Terminode Remote Routing (TRR), used when the destination is far and Link state routing i.e. Terminode Local Routing (TLR), used when the destination is close. Their proposed concept uses the OLSR instead of Link state routing when the location accuracy is low in MANET's. The key concept used in OLSR is that of Multi Point Relays (MPRs).Multi Point Relays are selected nodes which forward broadcast messages during the flooding process.
