An Extensive Simulation Analysis of AODV Protocol With IEEE 802.11 MAC for Chain Topology in MANET
A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) represents system of wireless mobile nodes that can self-organize freely and dynamically into arbitrary and temporary network topology. Routing is the task of directing data packets from a source node to a given destination. The main method for evaluating the performance of MANETs is simulation. This paper is subjected to Ad hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol, performance with IEEE 802.11 Mac protocol in chain topology for various number of nodes and evaluated its performance. The authors investigated the performance metrics namely throughput by varying network size up to 55 nodes through NS-2 simulation.
