P. Visu, S. Koteeswaran and J. Janet


Problem statement: Network becomes very important technology in the day to day life style of modern computer era, in which the wireless communication become very popular for the last few years. In the same manner, the other wireless network, i.e., ado network is very popular among the researchers in the past few decades. Approach: The Ad hoc networks are defined as a multi-hop radio relaying and are capable of operating without the support of any fixed infrastructure. Identification of optimal route for data communication, efficient utilization of energy, clustering, providing congestion free communication, offering scalability, maintaining the Quality of Service (QoS) are few research issues in the Adhoc Network. Results: This study is focusing the review of current research and the requirements, characteristics and design of wireless ado routing protocol. Conclusion: The results of the proposed work show that the proposed swarm intelligence based algorithm will provide optimality than existing systems.
