Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET) is wireless networks consisting of a collection of mobile nodes with no fixed infrastructure, where some intermediate nodes should participate in forwarding data packets. Energy conservation is a critical issue in ad hoc wireless networks for node and network life. Enhanced Medium Access control (eMAC) protocol prevents link/routing failures, hidden/exposed terminal problems and broadcast storm problems using an adaptive unreachability reporting mechanism with more energy consumption. Furthermore, An adaptive table broadcasting technique is proposed to distribute topology information in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs).
