Mobile ad-hoc network is an emerging trend and it has to face many challenges and issues. Routing in these networks is highly complex due to moving nodes and hence many protocols have been developed. Routing in ad hoc networks is a very challenging issue due to nodes mobility, dynamic topology, frequent link breakage, limitation of nodes (memory, battery, bandwidth and processing power), and lack of central point like base stations or servers. So by analyzing different ad hoc routing protocols based on the metric throughput, packet delivery ratio, end-to-end delay which may yield a solution to the challenges in the ad hoc routing in different situations.
