An Energy Efficient and Cooperative Congestion Control Protocol in MANET
This paper presents an energy efficient and cooperative congestion control protocol to control the congestion in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs). The proposed scheme overcomes the disadvantages of existing multicast congestion control protocols which depend on individual receivers to detect congestion and adjust their receiving rates. In the first phase of the proposed protocol, it builds a cooperative multicast tree rooted at the source, by including the nodes with higher residual energy towards the receivers. In the second phase of the proposed protocol, it proposes an admission control scheme in which a cooperative multicast flow is admitted or rejected depending upon on the output queue size.
