An Enhanced Queue Management Approach for Greedy Routing in MANETs

Ahmad Habboush, Mahmoud AlShugran


Mobile Ad-hoc network (MANET) is the guiding technology of ubiquitous era and a cornerstone in the 4G communication architecture. MANET has limited resources and characterized with high mobility and frequent topology change. Routing in MANET should follow these constrains, otherwise, it can severely degrade the performance of MANET. Owing to Greedy routing (GFS) nature in MANET, a certain part of the MANET becomes congested before other parts. In such area the nodes have failed to forward packets in a timely manner or drop them, thus such nodes called Network Holes. This paper presents a simple and efficient enhanced GFS routing algorithm called Intelligent Fuzzy logic Greedy forwarding Scheme (IFGFS). IFGFS consider the De-congestion level of each mobile node as another selective metric besides distance. In order to validate our algorithm, we rely on a wide simulation experiments. The evaluation results showed the correctness of our new proposed algorithm the adaptive- congestion IFGFS which maximize the performance of the network.
