One of well-known routing protocol for ad hoc networks is zone routing protocol (ZRP). The performance of ZRP is better than other protocols. However, many useless control packets are used resulting in the increase of network load and decrease of network performance. In this paper, we propose a selective border-casting zone routing protocol (SBZRP) to reduce the network load by limiting the number of control packets when the protocol searches for a new route. The performance evaluation via simulations shows that the SBZRP has better performance than ZRP.

    • "Hybrid protocols try to realize an on-demand protocol with a limited research cost. The most common is the ZRP protocol [14] [15] [16] [17] that uses the advantage of proactive route discovery in a limited area and the advantage of reactive protocol to transmit this information between the different local areas. Since in an Ad Hoc network the most of communications take place between adjacent nodes, the topological variations are more relevant near the node more distant, where the adding or the subtraction of another node have a certain impact.

    ABSTRACT: Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) is a hybrid protocol that combines the advantages of both the proactive and reactive protocols. It is classified as: Intra Zone Routing, which uses hop count of the N-neighbors using proactive techniques and Inter Zone Routing, which includes the rest of the network excluding the N-neighbors using reactive techniques. In anycast routing, the packets are routed to the most nearest anycast group member. In this paper, a literature review about Zone Routing Protocol and Anycast addressing is presented along with the concept where we propose to use Anycast addressing in Zone Routing Protocol assuming that the destination as a member of anycast address, is proposed. This idea is proposed for the consistent improvement of performance of Zone Routing Protocol.

    ABSTRACT: In mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs), the nodes intercommunicate through single-hop and multi-hop paths in a peer-to-peer fashion. Intermediate nodes between two pairs of communication nodes act as routers. Thus, the nodes operate both as hosts and routers. The nodes are mobile, so the topology of the network may change rapidly and unexpectedly. One well-known routing protocol for ad-hoc networks is the Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP). However, when the protocol searches for a new route, it sends many useless control packets, which increase the network load and decrease the network performance. In this paper, we propose an Enhanced Zone Routing Protocol (EZRP). In EZRP, each node calculates the reliability of the route. In the case of a reliable route, the source node sends the data packet directly to the destination node using that route without route searching. In the case of an unreliable route, the source node searches for a new route again. We show that the network performance can be improved by using EZRP. Copyright © 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
