A Low Overhead Reachability Guaranteed Dynamic Route Discovery Mechanism for Dense MANETs
A crucial issue for a mobile ad hoc network is the handling of a large number of nodes. As more nodes join the mobile ad hoc network, contention and congestion are more likely. The on demand routing protocols which broadcasts control packets to discover routes to the destination nodes, generate a high number of broadcast packets in a larger networks causing contention and collision. We propose an efficient route discovery protocol, which reduces the number of broadcast packet, using controlled flooding technique. The simulation results show that the proposed probabilistic flooding decreases the number of control packets floating in the network during route discovery phase, without lowering the success ratio of path discoveries. Furthermore, the proposed method adapts to the normal network conditions. The results show that up to 70% of control packet traffic is saved in route discovery phase when the network is denser.
