Reactive protocols don't maintain routing information or routing activity at the network nodes if there is no communication. Reactive protocols determine a route to some destination only when somebody wants to send a packet to that destination. The route discovery usually occurs by flooding the route request packets throughout the mobile ad-hoc networks. The authors' approach is using reverse route calculation in RRQ packets and reverse route calculation in RRP packets to obtain optimal path communication between sender nodes to destination node for mobile ad-hoc networks.
