Abstract

Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are used extensively for applications that require mobility while routing, more importantly for emergency and military operations. Routing information to nodes without a fixed infrastructure and with dynamically changing infrastructure is one of the greatest challenges. Multicasting is a more frequent requirement for such defense operations, which adds on to the level of difficulty while routing. In order to overcome this challenge, a couple of protocols exist in the literature providing various solutions to delivering data to multiple destinations at mobility. However, these strategies are either of greater complexity or the cost is high. In order to overcome this issue, a number of protocols exist in the literature providing various solutions to delivering data to multiple destinations at mobility. However, these strategies are either of greater complexity or the cost is high. In this paper, we present a performance study of FRRM (Familiar route retrieval for multicasting) protocol in MANETs which uses the concept of cache memory to retrieve the familiar routes efficiently. The performance of this protocol is analyzed using NS2 on the basis of three parameters such as packet delivery ratio, throughput and energy consumption.
