Literature Review on Probabilistic Broadcasting Techniques in Mobile Ad Hoc Network

Authors(2) :-J. Revathi, Dr. S. Subbaiah

A wireless ad hoc network (WANET) is a decentralized kind of wireless network which is also known as Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET). The mobile nodes are connected via wireless links to form an uninformed topology without using existing transportation, which is called as a self-identity-configuring network. A Mobile Ad hoc Network be able to modify the locations and arrange itself in an effective manner. Probabilistic broadcast has been broadly exploited as a flooding optimization mechanism to alleviate the effect of broadcast storm issue that handle during route discovery and other services in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). The broadcast scheme is broadly utilized within routing protocols by means of using a wide range of wireless ad hoc networks like vehicular ad hoc networks, smart phone ad hoc networks, and internet- based sensor networks. In this paper represents a complete summary about recent work related to the probabilistic broadcast mechanism in MANETs and how to reduce the routing overhead consider within the field of mobile nodes.
