A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes that communicates with each other without using any existing infrastructure or centralized supervision. A major design issue for an efficient and effective routing protocol for real MANETs is, therefore, to achieve optimum values of performance parameters under network scenarios where nodes are subjected to different types of mobility that dynamically change the network topology. In this paper, the author comparing the performance of five prominent Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) protocols. The author simulative study on MANET routing protocols and mobility models aims to determine the performance of current MANET routing protocols with respect to various mobility models implemented in GloMoSim 2.0.3 simulator.
