Increased Throughput for Load Based Channel Aware Routing in MANETs with Reusable Paths
The widespread applications of Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) have lead to the development of many protocols in this field. Routing protocols for ad hoc networks have generally ignored channel fading. This paper proposes a routing protocol which calculates the channels non-fading duration for routing which attempts to minimize packet loss due to fading and also reuse the path with some security mechanisms to increase the throughput. Specifically, in the proposed paper the faded paths can be reused when they become available again, rather than being discarded, also the loads are balanced on the link.
