Background / Objective: Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) creates a transient network that does not depend on any infrastructure or central administration mechanism. Such networks are made up of wireless mobile nodes. These nodes have to rely on batteries due to lack of stable power supply, so energy consumption is considered one of the main difficulties of this type of network. These nodes change their positions immediately, so the battery is depleted very suddenly, which affects network life. The best routing can be achieved by improving network quality, keeping high energy in mind by multipath routing in ad hoc networks using zone-based technology. The main objective of this research is to evaluate some popular performance metrics with energy efficiency. In this research, the zone-based leader Election Energy-Constructed AOMDV Routing Protocol (ZBLE) has been compared to the traditional routing protocols AODV and AOMDV, suggesting that the ZBLE protocol exhibits better results. Methods / Statistical analysis: In this paper, the routing protocol ZBLE based on zone-based technique is used. In this, the leader node is selected using the node's energy label, power analysis, and node position tracking function. The best route has been achieved by the leader node selection algorithm and power analysis. Conclusion: Most energy-related protocols are based on single-route routing, which has not been able to pay much attention to the accumulation of energy, and there have been attempts to make multi-way routing protocols also energy-based protocols, but also these protocols have been unable to make good use of energy. Through the NS2 simulator, network life is extended by reducing energy consumption by using a new energy-based multi-way routing protocol ZBLE. The results of this routing protocol performance evaluation suggest that the ZBLE protocol is superior to the AOMDV and AODV protocols. It is a zone-based technique that works by concentrating on the highest energy of nodes. Simulation results reported that the performance of ZBLE outperformed that of AOMDV and AODV. Applications / improvements: Zone-based technology can be easily used for extremely large networks. Ad-hoc network performance has been improved by improving network quality using this protocol.
