The paper presents the evaluation of the GQP algorithm in AMI networks using real map based network topologies (low, medium and high density of buildings). The algorithm was compared to the reference algorithms: CB, SBA and DP. It was shown that the GQP algorithm presents the good scalability, relatively optimal number of selected forwarders and by introducing the redundancy factor, good fault tolerance. An improvement to GQP algorithm to add a redundancy factor is proposed, what allows to execute fault tolerant broadcast transmission.
