A mobile ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes that communicate with each other without centralized control or established infrastructure. The mobility model should represent the realistic behavior of each mobile node in the ad hoc network as routing protocols performances vary widely across the different mobility models. Since not many mobile ad hoc networks are currently deployed, research in this area is mostly simulation based. In this paper, the authors focus on the impact of Chain mobility models on the performance of Reactive routing protocols. With the help of NS2 simulator they investigated various simulation scenarios by varying number of mobile nodes.
