12] LAUNCH: a location-aided routing protocol
for cognitive radio networks Authors of  propose a location-aided routing protocol
that considers stochastic PU activity and provides a stable route.
So from data delivery point of view the higher the ratio the faster and efficient the routing protocol
Some highly used proactive routing protocols
are Destination Sequenced Distance Vector and optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) and Wireless Routing Protocol
In Dynamic Source Routing protocol
(DSR) , each node contains a route cache and with new route the cache is updated.
Energy Efficient Localization Free Routing Protocol
GYTAR  is an intersection based routing protocol
DSDV is the proactive routing protocol
, the theory of this type protocols is that each mobile node establishes and maintains a complete routing table which contains the route to each node, it can rapidly reflect the network topology, the delay of this type is smaller, but the routing overhead is larger, the efficiency of protocol is lower; DSR and AODV are the reactive routing protocols
, the theory of this type's protocols is that each node do not maintain any information of the routing in advance, only when sending data to the destination node, the source node launches the routing searching process in the network to search and establish the corresponding routing, thus this way save some unnecessary routing overhead, but increases the packet transmission delay.
This paper presents a thorough evaluation of Dynamic MANET On-demand (DYMO) routing protocol
(Chakeres and Perkins, 2008) and draws comparisons with well known protocols - Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) (Johnson et al.
The Bandwidth Efficient Multicast Routing Protocol
(BEMRP) is a classical example of the minimum link-based source-tree multicast routing protocols
as the protocol attempts to minimize the number of additional links that get incorporated when a new receiver node joins an already existing multicast tree.
Another routing protocol
that we use for smaller networks is RIP (Routing Information Protocol) (RFC 2453), that uses Bellman-Ford algorithm.
In this paper, we presented the results for various proactive and reactive routing protocols
like Ad Hoc On-Demand Vector routing (AODV), Dynamic MANET On-demand (DYMO), Source Tree Adaptive Routing (STAR) protocol, Routing Information Protocol (RIP), Bellman Ford, LANd Mark Ad hoc Routing protocol
(LANMAR) and Location Aided Routing protocol
Network protocol software provider Data Connection (DCL) announced on Friday that firewall company Palo Alto Networks is using its DC-OSPF and DC-RIP IP routing protocol
stacks on the PA Series firewall products.
