Multicast Routing for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks using Swarm Intelligence

Mrs. B.D. Shirodkar, S.S.Manvi, A.J.Umbarkar

Full text:† PDF


An ad hoc network is a multi-hop wireless network formed by a collection of mobile nodes without the intervention of fixed infrastructure. Multicasting is an efficient way of providing services for group oriented applications. Multicasting involves transmission of packets to a group of nodes identified by a single destination address.

Swarm intelligence refers to complex behaviors that arise from very simple individual behaviors and interactions, which is often observed in nature, especially among social insects such as ants. Although each individual (an ant) has little intelligence and simply follows basic rules using local information obtained from the environment, such as antís pheromone trail laying and following behavior, globally optimized behaviors, such as finding a shortest path, emerge when they work collectively as a group.

Our proposed work is multicasting with multiple cores by adopting swarm intelligence. Swarm intelligence is used to select multiple cores. These multiple cores used to connect to all group members. Proposed work is designed to support group communication applications. That requires a large degree of coordination and exhibit highly dynamic group membership changes.

The proposed work is simulated using C language to test operation effectiveness in term of performance parameters such as Packet delivery ratio, Latency and route discovery time.
