Mobile Ad-hoc networks are characterized as networks without any physical connections. In these networks there is no fixed topology due to the mobility of nodes, interference, multi-path propagation and path loss. One particularly challenging environment for multicast is a Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET), where the network topology can change randomly and rapidly, at unpredictable times. As a result, several specific multicast routing protocols for MANET have been proposed. In this paper, the author studies the effects of mobility models on the new proposed Secured and Enhanced Reliable Ad-hoc Multicasting Protocol (SERAMP).
