Abstract

Although the mobility of nodes or computing devices may cause problem of link failure, a careful strategy used for routing protocols resolve one of the major issue associated with MANETs. The multicast routing protocols adopt either a tree-based configuration structure or a mesh-based configuration structure to maintain their state in stressed conditions posed to them in various scenarios. The research paper focuses on evaluating the performance of routing scheme used by SLIM+ for real-time multimedia streaming multicast in open group environment of MANET. Performance metric used is Throughput and Normalized Routing Load; comparing SLIM+ with its competitive and most commonly used MAODV and PUMA routing protocols for multicasting. It then observed that performance of SLIM+ is promising.
