dc.description.abstractThe VNLayer approach simplifies software development for MANET by providing the developers an abstraction of a network divided into fixed geographical regions, each containing a virtual server for network services. In this paper, we present our study on reactive MANET routing over the VNLayer. During this research, we identified in our initial VNLayer implementation three major limitations that lead to heavy control traffic, long forwarding paths and frequent message collisions in MANET routing. To address the problems, we changed the assumptions made by the VNLayer on the link layer and extended the operations allowed by VNLayer. This results in a VNLayer implementation that can be tuned to optimize the performance of traffic intensive applications (such as routing) while maintaining their simplicity and robustness. Simulation results showed that VNAODV, a VNLayer based routing protocol adapted from AODV, delivers more packets, generates less routing traffic and creates more stable routes than AODV in a dense MANET with high node motion rates. This research validated that the VNLayer approach makes software development for MANET easier and improves the performance of MANET protocols.en_US
