The Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol
is intended for use by mobile nodes in an ad hoc network.  It
offers quick adaptation to dynamic link conditions, low processing
and memory overhead, low network utilization, and determines
unicast routes to destinations within the ad hoc network.  It uses
destination sequence numbers to ensure loop freedom at all times
(even in the face of anomalous delivery of routing control messages),
avoiding problems (such as "counting to infinity") associated with
classical distance vector protocols.

This document is a product of the Mobile Ad-hoc Networks Working Group
