Improvement of Network Lifetime by Improving Route Discovery Phase in Multi-Path DSR
Routing as one of the cornerstones of any network including MANET, is needed when it require to send data packets over several nodes to arrive at their destinations. An ad-hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile hosts forming a temporary network without the aid of any stand-alone infrastructure or centralized authority. In this paper, energy efficient dynamic source routing algorithms for Ad hoc network is proposed i.e. the modified DSR protocol. In this paper, the authors not only focuses on the energy efficiency of participating nodes but tries to improve overall network lifetime of the network to be fruitful in giving them more better results.
