ABSTRACT

In wireless multi-hop network, many applications need multicast communication where the group leader needs to send data to all members of the group. Multicast routing provides a balanced, efficient, and fairness network environment for the group members. However, large load for transmission management to leader node and signal interference between several paths for multi-hop links always took long transmission delay and low throughput efficiency. In this paper, we propose a Zone-based Hierarchical Multicast Routing Protocol (ZHMP). This routing protocol is designed based on zone routing schemes, where proactive routing is applied for intra-zone node level multicasting and reactive routing is used for searching inter-zone paths. By each hierarchical and independent multicast working in separated zones, load of multicast source node will be distributed by several zone-level routings for a better load balance and signal interference between each multi-hop paths will be resisted for a maximum multicast throughput.
