The authors have presented a balanced routing protocol for Mobile Ad-hoc Networks using the smart antenna in this paper. Multipath routing can be effectively used to maximize the utilization of network resources for real-time traffic. In mobile ad-hoc network, this approach can suffer from co-channel interference or route coupling due to simultaneous transmission of packets via multiple routes. They use zone-disjoint routes and define maximally zone disjointness as route selection criteria. An adaptive routing strategy is proposed that use the advantages of directional antennas in ad hoc networks through the selection of maximally zone disjoint routes.
