A Distance Vector Routing Protocol for Real-Time Traffic in Ad hoc Networks
The widespread development of Ad hoc networks and its numerous possible applications have pushed for the need of real-time applications. Since wireless resources are much scarcer than fixed ones, it is necessary to design new schemes to improve support for real-time traffic and optimize network load. The Real-time On demand Distance Vector (RODV) routing protocol deals with real-time traffic (such as audio and video which are time sensitive) by improving the performance of basic AODV (Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector). RODV routing protocol decreases the load on the node by checking the load by “route discovery” mechanism. Then it finds the optimal path at the destination node, by which the congestion in the network is minimized. This will decreases the delay for the transmitting of Real-Time Traffic. In “Route Maintenance”, if any link is failed or active node is moved from the link, RODV handles the situation, by finding the path between the nodes where the link is failed. This will reduce the delay in transmitting the data when compared with AODV routing protocol and the routing overhead in the network will also be decreased in the Ad hoc Network.

As a Placement officer incharge for the department, we organize on campus placement initiatives for the students to get placement in good organizations. We also organize conducting Group discussions, Personality development classes, Technical and Logical Reasoning tests to enable students to fit their industry standards.
Apart for the normal teaching assignments experienced in handling classes for other government officials to equip their computer knowledge. Presently working for the CENTAC (Centralised Admission System) functioning in the Pondicherry Engineering Campus for admitting students for Medicine, Engineering and LLB programs.
