Abstract

Create a routing with high reliability is one of the most important issues in mobile Ad hoc networks. Therefore, load balancing and congestion the main issues of network are routing creating. Presented numbers of the works and several routing protocols for load balancing have been proposed with different metrics. The majority of proposals are currently looking at the routing overhead, Try to achieve load balancing and avoid adding additional routing overhead during a route is creating. Most of the selected metrics proposed protocol is based on traffic load. Try to distribute the traffic load on their network nodes. Choose an appropriate metric can help to improve network performance. In this paper, we consider the metrics of the hop number and the residual energy of nodes are studied load balancing routing protocols. And with a comparative study we show that different load balancing routing protocols and by selecting the appropriate metrics can improve network performance.
