Congestion Avoidance in Mobile Ad-hoc Network : A Review

Authors(3) :-Shalini Thakur, Priya Mankotia, Bharat Batra

MANET is a mobile ad-hoc network that has the ability configuring itself and changing the location according to the requirement of the user. In the mobile adhoc network, at any time the nodes may join or leave the network. Congestion is the main issue in the MANET. When the number of nodes transmitted the packets across the network then there is a chance of congestion which may lead to packet loss. It has been analyzed that AODV routing protocol performs well as compared to other protocols. The AODV protocol will be improved to establish a path from source to destination to minimize the chance of congestion. In this paper, we will review the different routing techniques and the reasons of congestion.
