Optimized AODV with modified metric
MetadataShow full item record
The growth of wireless technology has developed since the invention of wireless devices. With the recent introduction of smart phones and other latest mobile devices, the growing need for networking is limitless. This calls for a more efficient Adhoc network formed on the go. The goal is to improve the MANET type of Adhoc networks. This infrastructure less network has routing protocols to route the packets to the intended recipient in an organized manner. AODV protocol chooses the best path to the destination based on the hop count as metric it has no power, stability and bandwidth optimization. Considering the current need, the resource needs to be utilized in an efficient manner so that the requests are met in a timely manner. This research proposes a stable, energy aware ,bandwidth, optimized metric to load balance the traffic between available non-overlapping channels in 802.11 standards. The proposed protocol has proved to have 50% better performance. It has avoided additional overhead for the control packet and accounted for another important broadcast storm problem by avoiding HELLO (Used as keep alive) packets used to discover neighboring nodes.
