WBRR: A Weight Based Reliable Routing Method in Mobile Ad Hoc Network

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET) consists of a set of mobile hosts that can communicate with each other without the assistance of base stations. MANETs are heterogeneous mix of different wireless and mobile devices, ranging from little hand-held devices to laptops. In MANETs, the high mobility of mobile nodes is a major reason for link failures. In this paper, the authors propose a Stable Weight-Based on-demand Reliable Routing Method (WBRR) for MANETs. This method incorporates features that enhance routing reliability, defined as the ability to increase packet delivery rate and uses the weight-based route strategy to select a stable route in order to enhance system performance.
