In MANET the nodes are needed to keep the up-to-date positions of their current neighbors for making moveable forwarding decisions. Cyclical communication of beacon packets that contain the geological location coordinates of the node is a popular method used by geological routing protocols to keep neighbor position. The authors contend and demonstrate that cyclical beaconing regardless of the node flexibility and traffic patterns in the network is not admirable from both renew cost and routing working points of view. They propose the Connected Dominating Set (CDS) strategy for geological routing and broadcast in MANET.
