In this project, hybrid protocol is constructed for transmitting the emergency healthcare data from moving ambulance and mobile pedestrian, sending patent’s physiological data to the hospital is considered in this project. The healthcare data is transmitted using Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave axis (WiMAX) network. Network topology changes frequently due to mobility of the entities involved and routing becomes challenging. To transmit the healthcare data more efficiently hybrid ZOLAR (zone optimize link state location aided routing) protocol is constructed. ZOLAR protocol is constructed by combining the best features of different routing protocols such as ZRP (Zone routing protocol), OLSR(Optimized link state routing) and LAR( Location aided routing) protocols. The performance of ZOLAR protocol is compared with AODV(Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing), ZRP (Zone routing protocol), OLSR(Optimized link state routing) and LAR( Location aided routing) protocols with respect to the performance metrics like Throughput(it is the rate of successful transmission of packets over a network per unit time), Packet delivery Ratio(it is the ration of number of packets delivered to number of packets transmitted over a network) , Average end to end delay(Delay is the time taken to transmit a packet from source to destination over a network) and average jitter(Jitter is the change in time between arriving of packets, it is due to timing drift, route change, network congestion). This performance comparison shows the hybrid ZOLAR protocol transmits medical data more efficiently than ZRP, OLSR, LAR and AODV.
