Abstract: Assigning the address to mobile ad hoc network is crucial part because it has no infrastructure. A robust protocol has required to enable the network to manage itself avoid collisions. Because of fading channels, frequent partitioning; joining/leaving the nodes to and from the network, collisions may occur. In this study, we analyze light weight protocol which assigns the address to the nodes in the network based on distributed address database stored in filters. This filter reduces the packet losses in the network partitions. The performance of the protocol is evaluated by considering the joining nodes, partition merge events and initialization of network. The final simulation results shows that this protocol overcomes the address collision problem and also controlling the traffic in the network in better way than the other protocols.
