Sector Routing Protocol (SRP) in Ad-hoc Networks

First M. Rajesh, J.M Gnanasekar


Routing protocols for wireless ad-hoc networks face the challenge of dynamic topology due to node mobility, limited channel bandwidth and low transmission power. Both proactive and reactive protocols have trade-off in them. Proactive protocols have large overhead and less latency while reactive protocols have less overhead and more latency. The ZRP is a hybrid protocol that overcomes the shortcomings of both proactive and reactive routing protocol. ZRP divides the entire network into overlapping zones of variable size where routing inside the zone is performed using proactive approach and outside the zone is performed using reactive approach.

Keywords: Ad-hoc Networks, Routing, Reactive, Proactive, ZRP.
