The Comparative Analysis of BABEL, DSDV and AODV Routing Protocols for Loop Avoidance Mechanism

Authors(1) :-Dr. J Rajeshwar

With rapid growing technology latest electronic gadgets coming in the field of computer networks thereby technology used in the networks are dynamically changing day to day, to adopt this latest modifications required to networks. Routing in this dynamic wireless environment is very challenging job, many routing protocols evolved for to perform routing mechanism in wireless networks each of with merits and demerits. Route discovery is the fundamental mechanism which faces many challenges, out of which looping is the major concern during routing mechanism. This paper focuses on loop avoidance mechanisms, specially the routing protocols which are addressing the looping problem. The routing protocols like Babel, Destination sequenced distance vector routing (DSDV), and Ad-hoc on-demand distance vector (AODV) are discussed with mechanism employed for loop avoidance. Finally comparative analysis is made to find out the best mechanism of loop avoidance and proposing a better routing protocol.
