Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are created by the
mobile computing devices on an ad hoc basis without
any support provided by a
pre-installed communications infrastructure. Along
with their appealing properties, MANETs exhibit
properties that hinder their realization. Topology
dynamism and bandwidth limitations adversely affect
the performance of MANETs routing protocols.
Virtual backbone is proposed to facilitate routing,
broadcasting, and establishing a dynamic
infrastructure for distributed location databases.
Minimizing the virtual backbone size produces a
simpler abstracted topology of the MANET and allows
for using shorter routes. In this book, a
comprehensive study of MANETs routing and clustering
algorithms is presented along with a simulation-
based performance
evaluation of the most renowned
algorithms using the NS2 network simulator.
This comparison focuses on the total costs incurred
in terms of CDS size, running time, and signaling
overhead generated during the CDS creation and
maintenance phases. Moreover, the effects of
mobility rates, network size, and mobility models on
the performance of each algorithm are investigated.
