Abstract:

We present the source-tree adaptive routing STAR protocol, which we show through simulation experiments to be far more efficient than the Dynamic Source Routing DSR protocol, which has been shown to be one of the best performing on-demand routing protocols. A router in STAR communicates to its neighbors the parameters of its source routing tree, which consists of each link that the router needs to reach every destination. To conserve transmission bandwidth and energy, a router transmits changes to its source routing tree only when the router detects new destinations, the possibility of looping, or the possibility of node failures or network partitions.
