Mobile Ad hoc Networks play an key role in crisis communications where network needs to be fabricated temporarily and quickly. Since the nodes move erratically, routing protocols must be highly current and consistent to guarantee successful packet delivery. Based on the data delivery structure, most of the existing multicast routing protocols can be classified into two folders: tree-based and mesh-based. We observe that tree-based ones have high furthering proficiency and low consumptions of bandwidth, and they may have poor robustness because only one link occurs between two nodes. As a tree centered multicast routing protocol, MAODV (Multicast Ad hoc On-demand Vector) shows an excellent performance in lightweight ad hoc networks. As the load of network increases, Quality of Service is degraded obviously. In this paper, we evaluate the impact of network load on MAODV protocol, and propose an optimized protocol MAODV-BB (Multicast Ad hoc On-demand Vector with Backup Branches), which improves stoutness of the MAODV protocol by combining advantages of the tree structure and the mesh structure
