Abstract:

We introduce WRP-Lite, which is a table-driven routing protocol that uses non-optimal routes, and compare its performance with the performance of the dynamic source routing DSR protocol, which is an on-demand routing protocol for wireless ad-hoc networks. We evaluate the performance of WRP-Lite and DSR for varying degree of mobility and traffic in a 20-node network. The performance parameters are end-to-end delay, control overhead, percentage of packets delivered, and hop distribution. We show that WRP-Lite has much better delay and hop performance while having comparable overhead to DSR.
