Selecting the Routing Protocol for Networking an Adaptive Mobile Network With Mesh Topology
In this paper, the authors report about selecting the routing protocol for networking an adaptive mobile network with mesh topology. Routing protocols that operate over wireless mesh networks are described. An adaptive wireless mobile network model is built-up in ns2 network simulator. A problem of routing protocol multicriteria choice is solved using the hierarchy analysis method. The focus on the routing over the mesh networks is determined by the complicate topology, high mobility and other peculiarities of mesh topology networks that make searching and maintaining the shortest route to the destination the crucial mechanism for efficient network operation.
