Link Quality and MAC-Overhead aware Predictive Preemptive Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad hoc Network

Ali Cherif Moussa and Feraoun Mohamed Kamel

In Ad Hoc networks, route failure may occur due to less received power, mobility, congestion and node failures. Many approaches have been proposed in literature to solve this problem, where a node predicts pre-emptively the route failure that occurs with the less received power. However, this approach encounters some difficulties, especially in scenario without mobility where route failures may arise. In this paper, we propose an improvement of AODV protocol called LO-PPAODV (Link Quality and MAC-Overhead aware Predictive Preemptive AODV). This protocol is based on new metric combine more routing metrics (Link Quality, MAC Overhead) between each node and one hop neighbor. Also we propose a cross-layer networking mechanism to distinguish between both situations, failures due to congestion or mobility, and consequently avoiding unnecessary route repair process. The LO-PPAODV was implemented using NS-2. The simulation results show that our approach improves the overall performance of the network. It reduces the average end to end delay, the routing overhead, MAC errors and route errors, and increases the packet delivery fraction of the network.
