A Comparative Analysis of Routing Techniques in Intermittently Connected MANETs

S. Ramesh and P. Ganesh Kumar

A Mobile ad hoc Network (MANET) is a self-configuring infrastructure less network of mobile devices connected by wireless. These are a kind of wireless ad hoc Networks that usually has a routable networking environment on top of Link Layer ad hoc Network. The routing approach in MANET includes mainly three categories viz., Reactive Protocols, Proactive Protocols and Hybrid Protocols. These traditional routing schemes are not pertinent to the so called Intermittently Connected Mobile ad hoc Network (ICMANET). ICMANET is a form of Delay Tolerant Network, where there never exists a complete end-to-end path between two nodes wishing to communicate. The intermittent connectivity araise when a network is sparse or highly mobile. The study in general is carried out to get hold of a plain gen about the routing schemes possible in disconnected networks. It could aid to put together a proposal for a novel routing technique which is capable of holding the benefits and excluding the detriments of its prior existing techniques. Routing in such a spasmodic environ is arduous. An indication of prevailing routing approaches for ICMANET and their comparisons on different network parameters are portrayed in further discussions.
