Energy Efficient QoS Aware SOCCOR Protocol for Improving Throughput in Wireless Mesh Networks

  • M. A. Archana

In a wireless mesh network (WMN), the network link detached among dozens or thousands of wireless meshes that “talk” to each alternative node to distribute the network association over the big space. The numerous downsides in a WMN are the energy consumption and throughput improvement. Even though, many techniques to resolve the concern of power consumption and performance improvement, this type of techniques do not give higher efficiency. In our proposed methodology we introduce a protocol known as swarm optimization clustering and colony optimization routing (SOCCOR). It is the combined technique of energy consumption based improved swarm optimization (EISO) and colony optimization routing (COR). The EISO uses chaotic sequences for weight parameter to improve the global searching ability and escape from local minima. During this EISO clustering fitness is evaluated for multiple iterations and this process continues until getting the optimum value. During the routing process, security also improved with different sparse matrix encryption methodology. COR is mainly used to find out the shortest path among the overall transmission. During this strategy, pheromone values updated by all the ants have reached the destination with the continuous manner and achieve an optimum resolution. Finally, the simulation was carried on the platform of NS-2 simulation tool. SOCCOR protocol can give economic transmission by reducing the consumption of energy and enhancing throughput.
