OLSRV2- An Efficient Approach for Improving Network Load in MANET

Miss. Gagandeep, Gureshpal Singh, Mohit Marwaha


MANET are decentralized & self-configured wireless network models which consists of various mobile nodes that work in distributed mode without the help of an administrator or access point. Its stand-alone topology allows the creation of non-permanent and specifically created networks that can operate in dense conditions. A MANET is a stand-alone collection of mobile users who communicate on narrow bandwidth wireless connections. This research paper proposes the OLSRV2 protocol that will reduce network load over OLSRV1
