Abstract

A mobile Ad-Hoc network is a collection of autonomous wireless nodes without any fixed infrastructure and centralized administration. Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. Each node operates not only as an end system, but also as a router to forward packets. The nodes are free to move about and organize themselves into a network. These nodes change position frequently. The main classes of routing protocols are Proactive, Reactive and Hybrid. A Reactive (on-demand) routing strategy is a popular routing category for wireless ad hoc routing The design follows the idea that each node tries to reduce routing overhead by sending routing packets whenever a communication is requested. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of reactive routing protocols, Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and proactive routing protocol Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV).The major goal of this study is to analyze the performance of well known MANETs routing protocol in high mobility case under low, medium and high density scenario. Unlike military applications, most of the other applications of MANETs require moderate to high mobility. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of reactive routing protocols, Advanced- Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector (Adv.-AODV), Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and proactive routing protocol Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV)[7][9].The major goal of this study is to analyze the performance of well known MANETs routing protocol in high mobility case under low, medium and high density scenario. Unlike military applications, most of the other applications of MANETs require moderate to high mobility. In this paper we analyzed the Adv.-AODV, AODV, DSDV and DSR protocols based on the performance metrics such as packet delivery ratio, average end to end delay and throughput in different test environments.
