Abstract: Mobile Ad hoc Network(MANET) provides wireless communication withoutany infrastructure. MANET generally uses a most popular and well-suited routing protocolthat is Ad hoc on Demand Distance Vector (AODV). Random topology and mobilityin MANET cause link break multiple times in network due to which poor link quality thatresults in packet losses in the network. In this paper, link quality improvement in AODV routing protocol is focused. Link quality issue can be resolved through Cross-layer design(CLD) interaction in the OSI communication model. This technique called as Reliable-AODV. CLD is implemented by interacting Physical firstlayer and network third layer of the OSI model, CLDinteraction help in strong route formation inAODV for Reliable-AODV. The result shows an improvement in the system Performance in terms of metricslike throughput, Packet Delivery Ratio(PDR) and reduction in the packet losses, delay ofthe network. Network simulator used for performance analysis is NS-2.a Simulation tool that shows improvement in results. Castadiva Emulator with Wi-Fi routers and laptop are used as test bed architecture for validating sample results of simulations. It is observed that some small variation in the simulated and emulated result by using real-time experimental setup.
