As the demand for mobile ad hoc wireless network (MANET) applications grows, so does their use for many important services where reliability and stability of the communication paths are of great importance. Therefore, a MANET must be able to establish reliable communication channels which are protected by failure recovery protocols. One approach for existing failure recovery protocols is based on using backup paths, or multi-paths. This technique provides for more stable communication channels for wireless services, in particular for MANET applications. But work on such multi-path protocols has focused on stability in the presence of link failure for MANETs. In this paper, we extend such protocols to maintain connection stability in the presence of node failure. Our work is focused on protecting the route of mobile wireless communications in the presence of node failure in order to improve their use in MANETs applications by discovering efficient stable communication channels with longer lifetimes and increased number of packets delivered. © 2013 The Authors.
