Evaluation of the Impact of Interference on Mobile Ad Hoc Network Performance

Phu Hung Le


In Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs), interference plays an important role in research in network perfomance. In this paper, we propose a new Hibrid Interference-Aware Multi-path Routing Protocol (HIA-MPOLSR)based on our definition of interference for mobile ad hoc networks. To evaluate the influence of interference in network performance, we compare our protocol to typical protocol OLSR [1] in terms of packet delivery fraction, end-to-end delay, and routing overhead when the RTS/CTS mechanism is alternatively enabled and disabled. From the observation of the simulation results, we see that interference significantly decreases the network performance.
