Abstract

Multicast Ad-Hoc on-Demand Distance Vector (MAODV) protocol keeps sending control packets within static periods whether there was sending of data packets or not, and it was not concerned with the amount of these data packets. Based on this, many people found out that there are a high number of control packets in the short-lived connection. The main idea of this paper was to compare between the original MAODV with another proposed approach used for enhancing MAODV protocol called (E-MAODV). The result appears that the E-MAODV protocol performs better than the traditional MAODV protocol.
