Other MANET routing approaches
- Hybrid protocols (zrp):
- partitioning of the network into zones;
- within a zone: one protocol (e.g. OLSR);
- outside a zone: another protocol (e.g. AODV).
- Location based protocols (lanmar, OLSR2):
- nodes partitioned into non-overlapping "groups";
- each group selects a "leader";
- within a group: one protocol (e.g. OLSR);
- between groups: one protocol (e.g. OLSR), leaders act as "super nodes", aggregating traffic for the group.
