Abstract

Problem statement: This article proposes the selection of best paths in Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) based on multipath routing with fuzzy cost in respect of the Fuzzy Cost Enabled Cluster based Routing (FCECR). Approach: By implementing FCECR, we have made changes to reduce the cost and route discovery overhead for the selection of best path from multipath routing from source to destination node. Results: Results are found in NS2 simulator that cost factorinfluence the network traffic and bandwidth consumption. Besides, it exposes effective changes of network topology. Conclusion/Recommendations: It is shown that the proposed method is used to cluster hierarchal structure management to look for selection of effective path. Future work will be evaluated by implementing the algorithm related to other parallel architectures.
