Background and Objective: Affected by the recent developments in the high potential technological
fields, the world is observing a tremendous rise in the popularity of wireless networks. Wireless
networks provide the users with the advantage of experiencing interruption free computing services
along with complete autonomy to freely travel to different locations. Adhoc Networks prove to be an
effective solution for the users under crisis as they provide all the advantages provided by wireless networks
even in the absence of any infrastructure.
Methods: The driving force behind the functioning of Adhoc Network is the Routing Protocol, which
undertakes the charge of all the services needed for efficient transfer of data from one device to another.
Zone Routing Protocol was assumed to be an effective routing protocol as compared to its purely Reactive
and purely Proactive counterparts. However, various researches have proved that the flat protocol
with highly overlapping zones requires a lot of storage for large networks due to the absence of aggregation
of routing information resulting in an increase in memory requirement and inversely impacted
Results and Discussion: This paper proposes an effective technique to aggregate the routes such that
the superfluous route requests are avoided and reduction in control overhead is achieved along with the
Conclusion: This paper lastly compares the performance of ZRP-RA (Zone Routing Protocol-Route
Aggregation) and ZRP. The simulation results discussed in this paper validate the novel RA based approach
by optimizing the various QOS parameters.
