In wireless networks most of wireless broadcast protocols heavily rely on the MAC 802.11-based CSMA/CA protocol. This protocol will avoids interference and collision by conservative scheduling of transmissions. But this CSMA/CA broadcast protocol will support only multiple concurrent unicasts, it will not support multicasting. This protocol will degrade the broadcast performance of wireless network particularly in lossy and large-scale networks. And also, if the position of nodes in the network changes then there will be an effect in network parameters likes delay and packet delivery ratio.
