Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) generally adopt a peer-to-peer architecture. Disconnectivity with peer nodes, induced by mobility, power drains and damage makes route maintenance difficult and degrade the network's ability. In this paper, the authors present a routing scheme for proactive management of such disconnections, by fusing and leveraging information derived from multiple levels of the network protocol stack using cross-layering. A key challenge in MANETs is to work out efficient methods to ensure route availability while incurring minimal control overhead. Routing techniques may be broadly divided into proactive and reactive schemes.
