Throughput Enhancement by Robust Routing in MANET
An ad hoc wireless network is highly impacted by the dynamic stochastic process of its underlying links which leads to link breaks during data transaction. Hence, to provide uninterrupted data transaction many routing algorithms have link recovery and maintenance procedures to minimize the loss of data. However, these procedures do not guarantee reliable data transmission in some special application conditions with harsh requirements on Packet delivery ratio and link quality. In this paper, the authors introduce an algorithm called robust route AODV which is a modification over AODV to improve the performance of the network by finding those routes which can stay intact for a certain period of time.
