Comparing AntOR-Disjoint Node Routing Protocol with Its Parallel Extension
In this paper we analysis a parallel approach of Ant-OR. This protocol is itself robust and susceptible to frequent topology changes, but with this approach called P-AntOR, which uses programming multiprocessor architectures based on shared memory protocol, we improve the behavior of AntOR, where the parallelization is applicable in the route discovery phase, route local repair process and link failure notification. The simulation results show that P-AntOR performs better than AntOR, considering metrics such as Throughput and Overhead in number of packets.
