Efficient and Reliable Reactive Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad-Hoc Network

Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a group of mobile nodes in which every node can communicate with each other without any fixed infrastructure. The Importance of MANET increases due to their application in rescue operation, military communication and disaster management. Movement of nodes, which makes the topology of MANET highly dynamic, cannot be neglected. Because of mobile nodes establishment of new connections and disconnection of old paths is a logical expectation. Performance of the network is highly affected because of frequent connection-disconnection of paths. In this paper a Efficient Reliable Reactive Routing Protocol (ERRRP) for MANET is proposed that optimizes the disconnection of routes among the mobile nodes. We introduce the so-called Reliability Factor in our scheme by means of which we select the reliable route. The RF is calculated as a function of Hop Count and Route Expiration Time, on the basis of which a route is established with less number of hops and high reliability. The scheme guarantees the reduction in network routing load by 30% and 6% enhancement in the packet delivery fraction (PDF) as compared to standard AODV protocol.
