TITLE: Research Issues in Routing Protocols for Mobile Adhoc Networks

In recent days, Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANET) has gained lot of importance in wireless communications. It has very resourceful use in emergency scenarios like disaster relief operation, military operations, and many applications for sensors environment, road safety, vehicular ad hoc communications, health, and peer-to-peer messaging. MANET has the characteristics of self-configurable, dynamically topologic, infrastructure less network. The mobile node (wireless devices) moves freely and randomly in the network. To communicate with other nodes it does not require any infrastructure like Access Points and each node communicates directly with each other within its coverage area. If the destination is outside source coverage, then the intermediate neighbor node supports to establish communication, since the nodes in MANET acts routers as well as transceivers. This process is called as routing and the procedure adopted to accomplish routing is called as routing protocol. In routing, nodes have to transfer packets (message) among other nodes to reach destination and it has two activities; one is determining routing path and other is transferring packets through neighbor nodes. Let we see different types of routing protocols and various challenges of routing in MANET. The routing protocols majorly classified as three types namely Proactive (table-driven), Reactive (on-demand) and Hybrid (both proactive and reactive). Some of the challenges in routing are dynamic mobility of nodes, battery power (energy) of node, bandwidth, channel availability, etc.; the mobility and energy of nodes are the main challenges in routing.
