Performance Comparison Using AODV and AOMDV Protocols in Heterogeneous Hybrid Cluster Routing Using Partial Authority Nodes in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
An Ad hoc network is a collection of mobile hosts without any fixed infra structure or a centralized administrator. Each node will act by itself as a router. These type of networks are heterogeneous in nature, i.e., with different communication characteristics. The nodes build the routing table statically as well as on-demand and therefore they exhibit hybrid nature in routing. The nodes are grouped together called cluster and each group is monitored by a cluster head during data transmission. The routing is performed either by inter-clustering where the source node and destination node belongs to different clusters or by intra-clustering where the source node and destination node belong to same cluster.
