Power Efficient Multicast Opportunistic Routing Protocol (PEMOR) to Optimize Lifetime Of MANET


The main idea of this paper is to propose an opportunistic multicast routing protocol with awareness of energy to adopt with the highly dynamic environment of Mobile Adhoc Network. The nodes spread in MANET environment is divided into several multicasting regions based on the geographical location. Each and every node is present in any one of the multicasting region. Each region is assigned with group address. When the source node forwards the data to a multicast group, the source node forwards the data through the node with highest power among the neighbor so, the proposed multicast routing scheme optimizes the total power consumption and increase the lifetime of the network. The performance is evaluated by comparing the results with the traditional method MAODV.
