APPLYING LOAD BALANCE TO REDUCE THE ENERGY CONSUMPTION OF THE VIRTUAL ROUTING PROTOCOL

Angelo Bannack, Luiz Carlos Pessoa Albini

Abstract

Energy consumption is a key issue inmobile ad hoc networks.To reduce the energy consumption of the network interface, it is necessary to turn it off, immediately affecting the routing protocols. Therefore, routing protocols and energy saving algorithms must be designed to work within each other. This article presents the use of energy management, using the load balance technique with single path, over the Virtual Routing Protocol (VRP). VRP is a hybrid routing protocol that can achieve a high delivery ratio, though it has a high energy consumption. Using load balance, it is possible to minimize this drawback, while keeping the high delivery ratio from VRP. It is shown that the basic VRP consumes more energy than AODV and DSR.While using the load balance technique, the energy consumption of VRP becomes very similar to AODV and DSR.
