Data Load Balancing In Mobile Ad Hoc Network Using Fuzzy Logic (DBMF)

Authors(3) :-Abu Sufian, Farhana Sultana, Prof. Paramartha Dutta

Volume and movement of data rapidly increasing in every type of data communications and networking, and ad hoc networks are not spare from these challenges. Traditional Multipath routing protocols in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) did not focuses data load distribution and balancing as much as required. In this scheme, we have proposed data load distribution and balancing through multiple paths simultaneously. We have considered three important parameters of ad hoc network those are: mobility of node, energy of node and packet drop rate at a node. This scheme combines these three metrics using fuzzy logic to get decisive parameter. We have shown improvement of this scheme over similar kind of protocols in NS-2 network simulator.
