Hierarchical routing is one of the fundamental but challenging topics in mobile ad hoc network, which combine proactive/table-driven with reactive/on-demand routing protocols and take advantages of both. And as an imperative means of hierarchical routing protocol, clustering approach provides an efficient and stable hierarchical structure for mobile ad hoc networks. In this paper, we designed a stable clustering algorithm and a corresponding hierarchical routing protocol for high dynamic mobile ad hoc networks. Each cluster is consisted of a cluster-head, several cluster-gateway nodes, several cluster-guest nodes and other cluster-members. The proposed routing protocol uses proactive protocol in inter-cluster and reactive protocol in intra-cluster communication. Simulation results showed that the clustering algorithm improves its stability by increasing the node number of individual clusters and decreasing node's switch times between clusters. And the proposed routing protocol not only decreases the end-to-end delay to guarantee the validity of data but reduces the communication control expenses to increase the utility of network resource and increases the packet acceptance ratio to verify the validity of the proposed protocol.
