A key factor deciding the performance of a routing protocol in mobile ad hoc networks is the manner in which it adapts to route changes caused by mobility. Exploiting the intuition that a less dynamic route lasts longer, we propose a new metric, the Route Fragility Coefficient (RFC), to compare routes. RFC estimates the rate at which a given route expands… CONTINUE READING
