Bandwidth scarcity is a major drawback in multi-hop ad hoc networks. When a single-interface single-channel (SISC) approach is used for both incoming and outgoing traffic, the bandwidth contention between nodes along the path has occurred as well as throughput is degraded. This drawback is overwhelmed by using multi-interface multi-channel (MIMC) approach as well as some of the quality-of-service (QoS) requirements have been enhanced. In this paper, we have applied MIMC approach to ad hoc on-demand multipath distance vector (AOMDV) routing protocol, called AOMDV-MIMC routing protocol, and its performance is compared with AOMDV routing protocol. The simulation results show the network lifetime, throughput, and packet delivery ratio of AOMDV-MIMC routing protocol have been tremendously improved than the AOMDV routing protocol.
