Performance Evaluation of Multicast Routing Protocols in MANET

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The advent of ubiquitous computing and proliferation of portable computing devices have raised the importance of mobile and wireless networking. A major challenge lies in adapting multicast communication to environments where mobility is unlimited and failures are frequent. This paper investigates the performance of multicast routing protocols aimed specifically at fully Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANET), the multicast protocol studied in this work are, On-Demand Multicast Routing Protocols (ODMRP), Adaptive Demand Driven Multicast Routing Protocol (ADMR) and Flooding in different mobility conditions e.g. Uniform, Manhattan, Exhibition, Random way point and Battlefield. This paper demonstrates that difference in protocol mechanics and different mobility patterns lead to performance differentials.
