broadcast traffic

broadcast traffic

In a network, message traffic that is sent out to every node on the network or a portion of the network (LAN segment). Broadcasts are issued for address resolution when the location of a user or server is not known. They may occur when clients and servers come online and identify themselves. Sometimes, network devices continually announce their presence. In all cases, the broadcast has to reach all possible stations that might potentially respond. See address resolution, ARP, SLP and broadcast.

There are two types of data packets to consider and they are (i) DBP--Data Broadcast Packet and (ii) DDP--Data Demand Packet.
In this paper, we mainly revises the routing discovery process of AODV, we increase the RANGE field (used to record the routing pipe radius) and the location coordinate of the node (whenever the node will starts a new routing or forwards the broadcast packet, the node add its location coordinates in the RREQ packet), the improved algorithm only makes that the nodes which is in the routing pipe and close to the destination node can forward the packets.
