As one of the most common application field of wireless network, ad hoc network has become a hot research topic in recent years. This paper presents a new routing protocol called Cross-Layer Interference-Aware On-demand Routing (CL-IAOR) based on cross-layer design for Multiple Interfaces Multiple Channels (MIMCs) mobile ad hoc networks, which utilizes a new channel assignment strategy to improve performance. In the authors' protocol, each host equips with 2 or more transceivers or interfaces, which is equal to the number of available channels. Simulation results show that the proposed routing protocol performs well in multi-hop mobile ad hoc networks.
