The Cluster-Based Routing Protocol (CBRP) is a grouping mechanism that supports unicast and multicast path discovery for low congestion and packet loss in routing mechanisms for multi-hop wireless mesh networks. No simulation analyses or comparisons with other routing protocols have been reported. In this paper, the authors have evaluated the performance of the CBRP and compared it to AODV and OLSR through software simulations. The scheme indicates several better performance levels in terms of the channel capacity, path discovery, packet delivery ratio, and end-to-end delay, at the sacrifice of routing overhead degradation.
