Routing Load of Route Discovery and Route Maintenance in Wireless Reactive Routing Protocols
In this paper, the authors present analytical study of routing overhead of reactive routing protocols for Wireless Multihop Networks (WMhNs). To accomplish the framework of generalized routing overhead, they choose Ad-Hoc on Demand Distance Vector (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and DYnamic MANET On Demand (DYMO). Considering basic themes of these protocols, they enhance the generalized network models by adding route monitoring overhead. Later, they take different network parameters and produce framework discussing the impact of variations of these parameters in network and routing performance.
