Enhancing route request broadcasting protocols constitutes a substantial part of recent research in mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) routing. We suggest a novel approach to modify route request broadcast based on node caching. The intuition behind node caching is that the nodes involved in recent data packet forwarding have more reliable information about its(More)
Energy efficiency is a major issue of concern in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) as mobile nodes rely on batteries, which are limited source of power, and in several environments, it is quite unwieldy task to replace or renew them. Consideration of energy efficiency is very important in the design of routing protocols for MANETs. A cross-layer design(More)
Enhancing route request broadcasting protocols constitutes a substantial part of research in mobile ad hoc network routing. In the thesis, enhancements of ad hoc routing protocols, energy efficiency metrics and clustered topology generators are discussed. The contributions include the followings. First, a node caching enhancement of Ad-hoc On-demand(More)
Enhancing route request broadcasting protocols constitutes a substantial part of recent research in mobile ad hoc network (MANET) routing. In this paper, we introduce a novel node caching approach for constraining the route request protocol in ad hoc routing. We have implemented node caching enhancement AODV-NC of AODV which improves the original AODV in(More)
