The mobile ad-hoc network consists of energy constraint devices called nodes communicating through radio signals forming a temporary network i.e. nodes are continuously switching from one network to another. To minimize the power consumption, the authors form the clusters with an elected cluster head (service provider) based on any cluster head selection strategy. As the topology of this network is time variant attributable to node mobility, nodes are continuously leaving and entering the clusters, automatically registering with the cluster head to become the member of the cluster.
