Ad hoc wireless networks are the category of wireless networks that utilize multi-hop radio relaying and are capable of operating without the support of any fixed infrastructure. In typical wireless networks, terminals have to be powered on at all time to detect possible signals that target them which causes in significant unwanted energy consumption. Ideally, the wireless radio is powered on only when there are data waiting to be transmitted or received. Otherwise, the radio is powered off and the node is in the sleep state. In this way, the wasted energy for idle mode is minimized. Energy is a precious resource in wireless ad hoc networks because most nodes in the network are driven by battery and cannot be recharged in most cases. In order to keep the network functional as long as possible, energy-efficient algorithms should be devised. By reducing the control traffic, energy consumption for packet each node can be reduced. The Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) implements hybrid routing by every network node proactively maintaining routing information about its routing zone, while reactively acquiring routes to destinations beyond the routing zone. In this paper, we proposed a model to reduce control traffic by calculating optimum zone radius and thus reduce the power consumption in the network, there by enhance the life time of the network. We demonstrate the performance of reduced control traffic in Zone Routing Protocol with varying number of nodes in the network using NS2 Simulator.
