An Optimized Scheme for Enhancing Mobile Ad-Hoc Network Routing Protocol for Transmitting High Density Data

S. Kannan, T. Kalaikumaran, S. Karthik and V.P. Arunachalam


Routing problems in mobile ad-hoc networks have been receiving attention in the last few years. Most of the proposed routing protocols concentrate on finding and maintaining routes in the face of changing topology caused by mobility or other environmental changes. The power aware routing protocols and the topology control algorithms have been developed to address the issue of limited energy reserve of the nodes in ad-hoc networks. In this study, an algorithm has been designed and it has been enhanced with the AODV protocol for transmitting high density data over the ad-hoc network. This enhanced protocol is named as EL-AODV protocol. Enabling the high density data over, ad-hoc networks is more exigent as the links are highly error-prone and go down frequently. The challenge in data transmission over ad-hoc networks is due to the nomadic nature of the host and identifying a dynamic routing protocol that efficiently finds a stable route between mobile nodes. The simulation results show that the pro-posed scheme shows better performance when compared with existing protocol.
