Abstract

Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is an autonomous collection of mobile users that communicate over relatively bandwidth constrained wireless links. Since the nodes are mobile, the network topology may change rapidly and unpredictably over time. The network is decentralized, where all network activity including discovering the topology and delivering packets must be executed by the nodes they, i.e., routing functionality will be incorporated into mobile nodes. An Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing (AODV) is a representative among the most widely studied on-demand ad hoc routing protocols. Previous protocols have shown some shortcomings on performance of AODV. AODV and most of the on demand ad hoc routing protocols use single RREP along the reverse path. Rapid change of topology causes that the RREP could not arrive to the source node, i.e., after a source node sends several RREQ packets; the node obtains a reply packet, especially on high speed mobility. This increases both in communication delay and power consumption as well as decrease in packet delivery ratio. To avoid these problems, a Reverse AODV (RAODV) has been proposed. RAODV tries multiple route replies which reduces the path fail correction packets and obtains better performance than other protocols. But RAODV has the most control packet overhead. Therefore, in this paper, we propose an Enhanced (EN-RAODV) that is improving the RAODV. The performance is evaluated through NS-2 simulator. Simulation results show that the proposed EN-RAODV improves the performance of network comparing with RAODV and AODV in most selected performance metrics such as packet delivery ratio, end to end delay, throughput, routing packet sent and routing overhead.
