NODE CLUSTERING TECHNOLOGY FOR ENHANCEMENT THE QUALITY OF SERVICE OF WIRELESS NETWORK
The performance of a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) depends on the volume of traffic and node speed. There is always room for improvement, especially when routing and node energy consumption are tightly coupled. Traditional routing techniques are used to increase performance metrics like throughput and latency. This study links the base station node to hosting nodes with 150, 250, and 350 numbers deploying four cluster heads to provide AODV-based routing using a clustering strategy. A far-near base approach is used to establish communication between the nodes. The enhanced clustering method have improved the throughput from 83.92% (baseline method prior to node clustering) to 92.474 %.
