Effect of Mobility and Traffic Flow on DSR Protocol in a Predefined Mobile Ad Hoc Network

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The increased used of bandwidth restricted multimedia applications over Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) create new challenges to routing protocols in terms of Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. To meet these requirements, the existing routing protocols should provide data transfer with minimal delay, packet loss and jitter. In the present paper, a predefined topology was created using NS-2 with strategically placed nodes in order to test the performance of Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol. The network was simulated with predefined mobility and workload and evaluated in terms of different performance metrics such as throughput, jitter, and number of dropped packets, end-to-end delay and routing efficiency.
