Abstract: Mobile ad hoc networks are characterised by random movement of nodes leading to frequent link disruptions apart from extra overhead to maintain network topology. AODV is a reactive protocol intended to maintain the network topology periodically for a MANET. This work aims to deploy a mobility managed mobile ad hoc network which uses AODV protocol along with the mobility managed (MM) scheme as proposed to enhance throughput by using MM scheme. The AODVMM protocol is also tested under varying buffer availability conditions and reduced transmission range for varying network sizes and different number of nodes.

 

Keywords: MANETs; mobility management; routing protocol; sparse nodes; AODV; delay tolerant networks; mobile ad hoc networks; buffer availability; transmission range.
