Multipoint Relay Selection based on Stability of Spatial Relation in Mobile Ad hoc Networks

Ayoub Abdellaoui, Jamal Elmhamdi, Halim Berradi


Increasing stability is one of the main objectives in designing routing protocols for Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANETS). Various research schemes have been addressed to this challenge and to support it. In fact, some papers have considered modifications to MPRs selection mechanism in OLSR. In this paper, the author proposes a new mechanism to elect stable and sustainable nodes relay between all nodes in MANETs. In this mechanism, a mobility function is used as the main selection criterion based on the calculation of the spatial relation of a node relative to its neighbor. This mechanism is applied in OLSR protocol to choose stable and supportable MPRs nodes. This mechanism significantly finds more stable MPRs and it promises QoS metrics such as lost packets and delay. Simulation results reveals a significant performance gains and it motivates further examinations to develop the mechanism in order to improve the routing protocol requirements. Performances are evaluated based on Random Waypoint model and network simulator ns3.
