OLSR is a well-known proactive routing protocol designed for Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs). OLSR adopts a concept of an MPR mechanism where only mobile nodes selected as MPR nodes can retransmit broadcast packets received from other mobile nodes. Although OLSR reduces the number of broadcast packets, MPR nodes consume more energy than other mobile nodes. Since mobile nodes in MANETs are powered by battery with limited energy, energy efficiency is a critical issue in designing a routing protocol that affects the overall network performance.
