MANET, MANET Challenges and Applications


In contrast to traditional wireless networks, Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs) are ad hoc groups of mobile nodes that operate independently of one another (Smart phones, Laptops, iPads, PDAs etc.). As nodes join and leave the network, the network automatically adjusts its topology and routing table to facilitate the seamless transfer of data packets. The article focuses on the uses and difficulties of MANETs. Researchers will be able to understand MANET in its entirety, from its purposes and potential pitfalls to its many practical uses. By relying only on wireless connections, mobile nodes in a Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) may send and receive data packets with one another without requiring a centralised network administrator. Offering a power-aware, secure routing protocol in such a network is challenging due to the dynamic nature of the topologies and the scarcity of available resources. In this research, we present a secure routing system that is both power-aware and reputation-based. A Krill Herd based Grasshopper Optimization Algorithm (KH-GOA) is developed, along with the reputation model and power, to construct a secure path from the starting node to the final destination. The reputation model takes into account a wide range of reputation parameters, including node mobility, actual capabilities, prior records, and reputation among neighbours. Reputation requirements for each node are analysed, and the KH-GOA approach, a combination of the Krill Herd (KH) and the Grasshopper Optimization Algorithm (GOA), is proposed for constructing a secure path from the source to the destination (GOA). The proposed KH-GOA-based routing protocol makes use of multi-objective factors such as reputation, power, distance, and latency.
