Mobile ad hoc network is a self-configuring infrastructure less network, without centralized infrastructure. Power heterogeneity is common in mobile ad hoc network. In MANET, interference significantly reduces the network performance such as data loss, conflict, and retransmission and so on. Interference is one of the problems in research. In this paper, apply a formula to calculate the interference of a node, a link, a path and an Interference-Aware OLSR protocol (IA-OLSR) based on Optimized Link State Routing protocol for mobile ad hoc network. IA-OLSR has the minimal interference from a source node to a destination node.
