A Simulation Based Study of AODV, DSR, DSDV Routing Protocols in MANET Using NS-2
Mobile Ad-hoc Networks are autonomously self-organized networks without infrastructure support. To facilitate communication within the network a routing protocol is used to discover routes between nodes. The main aim of the routing protocol is to have an efficient route establishment between a pair of nodes, so that messages can be delivered in a timely manner. Routing in the MANETs is a challenging task which has led to development of many different routing protocols for MANETs.
