A Review Paper on Clustering Technique in MANET

Shikha Sharma, Nitin Manjhi


Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are a distinctive kind of wireless networks that could be quickly deployed without preexisting infrastructures. They are used in exceptional contexts corresponding to collaborative, medical, military, or embedded functions. The clustering method builds upon the proposal of hierarchical or clustered management for MANETs and identifies logical clusters of nodes. Clustering is a major research topic for MANETs considering the fact that clustering makes it possible to assure normal stages of process performance, equivalent to throughput and lengthen, within the presence of each mobility and a giant number of mobile terminals. In this paper, outline clustering in MANET and be trained of previous papers in literature survey.
