A novel routing scheme named by ant-CEDAR for mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), which enhances core-extraction distributed ad hoc routing algorithm (CEDAR) using ant-like mobile agents is proposed in this paper. The proposed protocol reduces route discovery latency and package delay by using only a subset of nodes in the network for route management and avoiding the use of broadcast relays. Ant-CEDAR uses ants to establish and maintain core, and discover destination nodes. It tries to utilize… CONTINUE READING
