Hexagonal based Clustering for Reducing Rebroadcasts in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Abstract— In mobile ad hoc networks multihop routing is performed in order to communicate the packets from the source to destination. The nodes within these networks are dynamic due which frequent path change occurs which can cause frequent link breakages and induces route discoveries. These route discoveries can introduce overhead in terms of contention, collision and rebroadcasts which are non-negligible. Here, the paper discusses a hexagonal based clustering for reducing rebroadcasts thus maximizing the lifetime of the networks and providing coverage area thus reducing the end – end delays.
Index Terms— Mobile Ad Hoc Networks, Link Breakages, Route Discoveries, Overhead, Rebroadcasts.
