Routing and Multicasting Strategies in Wireless Mobile Ad Hoc Networks


Ad hoc networks are gaining increasing popularity in recent years because of their ease of deployment. No wired base station or infrastructure is supported, and each host communicasts one another via packet radios. In ad hoc networks, routing protocols are challenged with establishing and maintaining multihop routes in the face of mobility, bandwidth limitation and power constraints. In this dissertation, we study the routing strategies for ad hoc networks. On-demand routing protocols and table-driven algorithms are analyzed and compared against each other. Our study shows that on-demand protocols are better suited for mobile networks because they generate less control overhead and manage the mobility in a more efficient manner. Simulation experiments also indicate that providing multiple routes is beneficial in increasing the robustness against mobility....
