A Survey of Routing Protocols for Ad Hoc Networks Based on Update Mechanism

Ruaa A. S. Alsabah, Ali A. J. Al-Sabbag, and H. Alzorghani
Abstract—An essential matter for ad hoc networks is routing protocol design which is a major technical challenge due to the mobility of the nodes. Routing problem becomes more complex and challengeable, and it probably is the most addressed and studied problem in ad hoc networks. There are several classifications of Routing protocols are used to perform routing the information from source to destination. Classification methods help researchers and designers to understand distinct characteristics of a routing protocol and find its relationship with others. The main aim of this paper is to explore and to compare the concept of all routing protocol based on update mechanism. This classification divided into Table-Driven (Proactive), On-demand (Reactive), Hybrid routing protocols. Also, the comparison is provided based on the routing mechanism and information used to make routing decisions. Also this paper presents an overview of routing issues in different cases as well as a detailed discussion of and their relative performance. To compare and analyze an ad hoc network routing protocols, appropriate classification methods are important.

Index Terms—Ad hoc networks, routing protocols, performance analysis, update mechanism.
