Improvising the Ad hoc on Demand Distance Vector Routing Protocol When Nodes or Links Fails

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Bioengineering book series (LNBE)


Networks are being used in various areas and the demand of users’ nowadays has motivated the emergence of the mobile ad-hoc network (MANET). MANET is a dynamic network without the fixed infrastructure due to their wireless nature and topology and changes due to their dynamic nature. Among various protocol used as routing protocol in the MANET the ad-hoc on-demand distance vector (AODV) is most popular and widely used due to their various beneficial characteristics. But its beneficial characteristics will degrade when nodes or links fail as it sends the error message back to the source and whole process is repeated again. In this chapter, we proposes an method to carry forward the data packet when nodes or links fail from the last node it receives. This chapter will really improve the factors likes throughput, reliability, security, packet size, overheads, traffic congestion.
