As the network size increases the probability of congestion occurrence at nodes increases. This is because of the event driven nature of ad hoc networks that leads to unpredictable network load. As a result congestion may occur at the nodes which receive more data than that can be forwarded and cause packet losses. In this paper, the authors propose a hybrid scheme that attempts to avoid packet loss due to congestion as well as reduce end-to-end delay in delivering data packets by combining two protocols Destination Sequenced Distance Vector routing (DSDV), which is a table driven or proactive protocol and Improved Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing (IAODV) which is an on-demand or reactive protocol that reduces packet loss due to congestion.
