A wireless multi-hop network is made up of seamlessly operating nodes that function together either to monitor an application field from a remote location or perform communication. To obtain the routes to the destination, generally, the route request messages are flooded across the network. Not all RREQs are replied with a route reply, which indicates the number of wasted RREQ and RREP messages. All wireless nodes inform about various conditions at the sensing field to the control station through multi-hop routing because of the random deployment of nodes in the sensing field. In this paper, we analyse the Reliability and Flooding mechanism Algorithm for a Wireless multi-hop network that improves the reliability while flooding control messages in the system and also performs an authentication check while routing data. The performance of RCF is compared with the Reliability Aware Flooding Algorithm using simulations in the network simulator.
