Communication devices have become one of the most important instruments to stay in touch with each other. Over the years, engineers have been working to enhance the network protocols used by these devices for better communication. Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are networks with dynamic topology and limited resources, where routing is highly correlated to their performance. Most routing algorithms focus on the establishment of a single path between the source and the destination. However, multiple routes have been proven beneficial, when used either for load balancing or as backup routing paths.
