    Abstract :

    Communication is the basic requirement for the recent trends of technology. Infrastructure provision cannot be fulfilled according to the requirement due to lot of man power and materials involved. Also if one node wants to communicate to multiple nodes, then multicasting is a challenge. Now the trend is to create network where ever you are or easily be a part of network which is existing. In this paper this can be achieved in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) by creating clusters and election of Cluster Leader (CL) with the help of Weighted Clustering Algorithm (WCA). Cluster leaders of different clusters will communicate through a technique under Swarm Intelligence called Ant Colony Optimization (ACO). ACO uses Ant Based Route Discovery (ABRD) with the help of Forward Ant (FANT) and Backwards Ant (BANT).Once the path between the CL is identified through the pheromone deposited by FANT and BANT, it can be used to multicast data. Simulations on NS-2 show that the communication from one mobile node to any other mobile node can be achieved in just four hops. Multicasting can be achieved with less packet loss.
