Achieving Energy Efficiency in MANETs by Using Load Balancing Approach
Mobile ad-hoc networks have no base station and use multi-hop routing for transmission of data from a source node to its destination node. To make this multi-hop routing mechanism possible the authors need a routing protocol. They have adopted load balancing technique that can improve the overall performance for communication in a network. They have presented optimum performance for their novel protocol i.e. Energy Efficient Load Balanced AODV (EFLBAODV) and compared it to the traditionally existing reactive routing protocol Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) thus using the load balancing technique to improve the node to node communication in their network.
