Abstract: In Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET), interference is one of the important problems in research. Interference reduces significantly the network performance such as data loss, conflict, and retransmission and so on.In this paper, we analyze performance of our Interference-Aware Routing Protocol (IA-OLSR) by comparing to the famous protocol OLSR in terms packet delivery fraction, delay and routing overhead when RTS/CTS (Request to Send / Clear to Send) turns on or turns off. Simulation results show that the IA-OLSR’ packet delivery fraction significantly outperforms that of the OLSR. Our results also show that IA-OLSR‘ delay and routing overhead are lower than the corresponding results from the OLSR.
