Performance Enhancement of a Hybrid Extension of OSPF
Open Shortest Path First, abbreviated as OSPF is a link state routing protocol. It is widely used in both wired as well as wireless networks. Though there are different protocols for these networks but the reason behind extending the OSPF only is that the present age of networking has use of both wired and wireless networks easily and they are interacting mutually. MPRSP i.e. MultiPoint Relay with Smart Peering is an amalgam of two different extensions of OSPF. In this paper, the authors are going to evaluate the performance of MPRSP OSPF over other three extensions and will enhance its performance by reducing size of hello packet and adjacency set. To achieve this they would be using MPR selection algorithm.
