Cluster interactions are imperative in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs). Multicast is a proficient technique for implementing cluster connections. However, it is exigent to execute competent and scalable multicast in MANET due to the intricacy in faction association supervision and multicast packet forwarding over a dynamic topology. The authors intend a novel Efficient Geographic Multicast Protocol (EGMP). EGMP uses a virtual-zone-based formation to execute scalable and proficient group membership supervision. A network-wide zone-based bi-directional tree is constructed to accomplish extra proficient association supervision and multicast deliverance.
