A Dynamic and Reliable Mesh Routing Protocol for Wireless Mesh Networks (DRMRP)

Vol. 9  No. 4  pp. 16-21


A new routing algorithm has been introduced for Wireless Mesh Networks based on metrics associated with each route, the protocol is distinguished by being new technique that would use multi routing metric criteria and satisfies high packet delivery ratio, low delay, low overhead, and multiple gateway support. None of the known routing protocols for the mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET) and wired networks fulfill all of the five mentioned criteria. Mesh routing protocols usually forward all of the packets destined for a node to a gateway, then the gateway will route the packets to the destination. Mesh routing protocol also supports multiple gateways and routing based on metrics associated with each route. This reduces control overhead as well as the delay for a node to join the network. Control packets, called the registration and re-registration packets, are sent along the route to the gateway to ensure the validity of the route and to discern any link failure. The protocol also supports routing based on metrics associated with each route which allows a node to choose a gateway, as well as a route, based on a metric.
