Abstract

This paper introduces an on-demand multipath ad hoc network routing protocol called “predicted multipath routing protocol (PMP) that concerns about availability and throughput of result path set. The protocol enables communication hosts in the network to build a set of robust and high performance paths so that they can use the best performance path as a primary path and the others as backup paths. To measure the availability and efficiency of a path, we proposed two measurements. The first measurement is the degree of availability (DA) that anticipates the future survival of a path. It basically predicted the future signal strength of each pair of nodes using regression analysis. The second measurement that measures path efficiency is called “estimated path throughput value (ETV) . The ETV relies on the packet loss ratio of link between each pair of nodes.
