In Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET), congestion is one of the most important constraint that deteriorates the performance of the whole network and routing capability of AOMDV protocol. Multipath routing allows the establishment of multiple paths between a single source and single destination node. The multipath route establishment uses the method that discerns multiple multi hops communication between source and destination. Multipath routing can balance the load better than the single path routing in ad hoc networks, thereby reducing the congestion by dividing the traffic in more than two paths.
