Abstract : Using reduced topology within link state routing has proven to be an efficient way to decrease routing overhead while still providing sufficient route quality. There are various ways to achieve topology reduction, based on different ways to form a backbone in the network this backbone usually originates from the flooding optimization scheme in use, such as MPR or CDS. In case of mobile ad hoc networks, flooding using MPR backbones is preferable as it is more robust in face of topology changes, compared to flooding using CDS backbones. This text therefore describes several methods to enable the use of reduced topology in wireless OSPF for MANETs, when MPR-based flooding optimizations are used. The topology reduction methods that are proposed for MPR-based approaches perform at least as well as the similar schemes that were recently proposed for CDS-based apporaches.
