Bandwidth and power constraints are the main concerns in current wireless networks because multihop ad hoc mobile wireless networks rely on each node in the network to act as a router and packet forwarder. This dependency places bandwidth, power, and computation demands on mobile hosts which must be taken into account when choosing the best routing protocol. In previous years, protocols that build routes based on demand have been proposed. The major goal of on-demand routing protocols is to…
