PSR: A Lightweight Proactive Source Routing Protocol For Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
|Name||PSR: A Lightweight Proactive Source Routing Protocol For Mobile Ad Hoc Networks|
Opportunistic data forwarding is not used in mobile phone because lack of an efficient lightweight proactive routing scheme with strong source routing capability.Here we provide a lightweight proactive source routing (PSR) protocol. PSR can maintain more network topology information than distance vector (DV) routing to facilitate source routing, although it has much smaller overhead than traditional DV-based protocols,link state (LS)-based routing,and reactive source routing.Our tests using computer simulation in Network Simulator 2 (ns-2) indicate that the overhead in PSR is only a fraction of the overhead of these baseline protocols, and PSR yields similar or better data transportation performance than these baseline protocols.
