Mobile ad hoc networks consist of wireless hosts that communicate with each other without the support of fixed infrastructure. In case of large network, a flat structure may not be the most efficient organization for routing. For this purpose many clustering schemes have been proposed that organize the MANET into a hierarchy, with a view to improve the efficiency of routing. In this paper, we have presented a brief review of the state of the art scenario of routing topologies for mobile ad hoc networks and try to present a scheme that leads to cluster formation which efficiently uses the resources of the MANET. The proposed Cluster Based Mobility Considered Routing Protocol obtains efficient communications among MANET and achieves scalability in large networks by using the clustering technique. The new algorithm takes into consideration the mobility factor during routing and as well as computational overhead is also diminished. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2011.
