Energy consumption and network connectivity are two of the important research issues that are yet to be resolved in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). As taken advantage of in static networks, reliable topology control algorithms are also considered to be a good approach for mobile networks. However, a more adequate evaluation of these algorithms regarding mobility is still needed. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of some well-known topology control algorithms with various scenarios and measurements. The results show that Local Tree-based Reliable Topology (LTRT), a recently proposed algorithm, is the most scalable method and provides the most benefit in terms of redundant connectivity.
