Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) consist of a collection of wireless mobile nodes which dynamically exchange data among themselves without the need of fixed infrastructure or a wired backbone network. Routing protocol scheme for wireless networks are support by two essential requirements, minimize energy metrics or maximize network throughput. In this paper we propose a proactive source routing protocol with multipath routing facility. This multipath routing is established reactively. Owing to the inconsistency of the wireless infrastructure and nodes mobility, single path routing protocols causes performance degradation in mobile networks. Multi path routing protocol enhances the end-to-end throughput and offers load balancing in MANETs.Energy consumption in MANET is one of the important issues in this research. Reliable data delivery in MANET consumes lot of energy. Here we use a data aggregation technique along with multipath routing. As data communication involves heavy energy consumption, reducing the number of data transmissions helps in energy conservation. The performance analysis and simulation are carried out using Network Simulator-2.
