Neighbor supporting ad hoc multicast routing protocol

Neighbor supporting ad hoc multicast routing protocol
—An ad hoc network is a multi-hop wireless network formed by a collection of mobile nodes without the intervention of fixed infrastructure. Limited bandwidth and a high degree of mobility require that routing protocols for ad hoc networks be robust, simple, and energyconserving. This paper proposes a new ad hoc multicast routing protocol called Neighbor-Supporting Multicast Protocol (NSMP). NSMP adopts a mesh structure to enhance resilience against mobility. And NSMP utilizes node locality to reduce the overhead of route failure recovery and mesh maintenance. NSMP also attempts to improve route efficiency and reduce data transmissions. Our simulation results show that NSMP delivers packets efficiently while substantially reducing control overhead in various environments.
