Recent days it became a challenge to design a scalable and robust multicasting routing protocol in a Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET). In this paper, the authors propose a novel Robust and Scalable Geographic Multicast protocol (RSGM) and simulated the design with beautiful performance analysis with the existing protocols. Their results demonstrate that RSGM can scale a large network size, and can more efficient support multiple multicasting groups in the network. Compared to existing protocol ODMRP and SPBM, RSGM achieves a significantly higher delivery ratio under all circumstances.
