A Comparison Study between AntOR-Disjoint Node Routing and AntOR-Disjoint Link Routing for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Routing in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) is complex problem because of the dynamic topology, limited process and storing capability, bandwidth constraints, and lack of a centralized system. The design of efficient routing protocols is a fundamental problem in MANETs. Researchers have proposed a number of routing protocols in literature. This survey treats about a bio-inspired routing protocol called AntOR for these networks. Thus, one of its key aspects is disjoint route property. The simulation results show that the disjoint-link property has a better performance than disjoint-node according to metrics such as average End-to-End Delay and Jitter.
