Dadcq Protocol As An Adaptive Approach In Manet
Abstract— A adaptive approach is needed in MANET as it is a dynamically re-configurable wireless network in which it
has no fixed infrastructure so the optimized adaptive protocol needed for working properly. Dynamically changing topology
and different types of nodal mobility are major issues in designing best performance values for an efficient and effective
routing in MANET. Flooding and looping causes “Broadcast storm”, is a result of blindly and randomly retransmitting
broadcast packets which in turn lowers performance of routing. DADCQ (The Distribution-Adaptive Distance with Channel
Quality) protocol performs better than several existing broadcast protocols by using distance method and adaptive decision
threshold value. This paper introduces newly proposed DADCQ protocol in MANET.
