Abstract

Energy efficiency in routing protocols has been major design goal for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) as the hosts are energy constrained. Essentially two actions are concerned in this notion: Finding an optimal routing path-ways and transferring the packets throughout an inter-network. The transmission process of packets way-through an inter-network is called packet switching which is straight forward and simple, but the path determination could be very difficult and complex. The routing protocols employed use many metrics as a benchmark measurement to compute the best path for routing the packets to its destination and that measurement could be number of hops, and are used by the routing technique to determine the optimal path for the packet to its destination. The process of path determination is through routing tables, which contain the total route information for the packet. Routing techniques are majorly classified into static-routing and dynamic-routing. The static routing method refers to the routing strategy which is done manually or statically in the router. The static routing technique maintains routing tables written by a networks administrator. The dynamic routing process refers to the routing policy that is being learnt by routing protocol and is used consequently. This type of routing basically depends on the state of the network. ~/data/documents/oct2016/101601.pdf
