A MANET multicast routing protocol for stable trees based on the inverse of Link Expiration Times

This paper proposes a stability-based multicast routing protocol for Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) and it can simultaneously determine long-living multicast trees that also have close to minimum hop count per source-receiver paths. The proposed protocol is referred to as the MILET protocol, and is based on the inverse of the predicted Link Expiration… CONTINUE READING
