Broadcasting is an essential operation in
Mobile ad hoc Networks (MANETs) environments.
It is used in the initial phase of route discovery
process in many reactive protocols. Although
broadcasting is simple, it causes the well known
broadcast storm problem, which is a result of packet
redundancy, contention and collision. A
probabilistic scheme has been proposed to
overcome this problem. This work aims to study the
effect of network density and network mobility on
probabilistic schemes using different thresholds
(fixed, 2p, 3p and 4p) with the Pessimistic Linear
Exponential Backoff (PLEB) algorithm and
compare the results with the standard MAC. A
number of simulation experiments have been
conducted to examine the performance of the
proposed PLEP under different operating
conditions. The simulation results show that in
dense networks the normalized routing load, delay
and routing packets are high and the PLEB
outperforms the standard MAC in terms of delay
