Performance Evaluation and Improving Bandwidth Utilization of AODV Protocol by Finding Hidden Terminals in Wireless Networks
Ad-Hoc on demand distance vector routing protocol is designed for use in Ad-Hoc mobile networks. AODV is an on-demand distance vector routing protocol that determined a route to a destination only when a node wants to send a packet to that destination. This paper focuses to improvement of AODV protocol in wireless networks by finding the hidden terminals in the mobile network and improved the bandwidth utilization by using fair share algorithm. The bandwidth is the combination of width and range of frequency and due to this, the authors have to also solve the hidden terminal problem. These hidden terminals degrade the performance of Ad-Hoc networks for sharing resources on the same bandwidth.
