Many network applications require transmitting the same single copy of data packets concurrently to many destinations, it is called multicasting. Wired and infrastructure-based wireless networks are supported by many multicast routing protocols. But, applying this concept in Mobile Ad hoc wireless NETworks (MANETs) is a big challenge. Ad hoc wireless networks composed of self-organized mobile nodes that can move arbitrarily without any preexisting communication infrastructure base stations. It… CONTINUE READING
