The dynamic source routing protocol (DSR)

The major function of the dynamic source routing is entirely based upon the terminology of source routing. The route discovery process which is been carried out within this particular routing protocol is entirely different from the current routing protocols. The dynamic information is been utilized in order to decrease the broadcast messages as well as the advertisements of the periodic routing. The routes determination is been carried out in a dynamic way depending upon the cache information which is accessible or else the routing information which is been obtained by making use of the requests related to the sources in the form of the broadcasts towards the total networks.

The initial step within the process of routing is that the sender will situate the entire information about the total nodes which are to be navigated through the packets. And this specific information is been identified upon the packet header before the process of actual routing is been done. One of the significant benefit of this routing is the information related to the routing preserved through the intermediate nodes is been excluded as well as the essential information for the process is been sustained within the packet header. By making use of this routing protocol the advertisements related to the periodic route could be totally excluded and the overhead control will be totally decreased. The general function of the DSR routing protocol is again divided into two different steps such as the Route discovery as well as the Route maintenance which are been explained in detail as follows.
