The mobile adhoc networks are the infrastructureless networks constructed without any fixed infrastructure such as base station, tower, redirection switches and routers. Mobile adhoc networks are the temporary wireless networks. All the routing information is managed by the node itself. Mobile adhoc network routing operations are categorized into two types proactive and reactive routing. The multipath routing mechanisms are used to discover multiple paths under the nodes. MultiPath Dynamic Source Routing protocol (MPDSR) is used to discover multipath route under MANET nodes. The MPDSR protocol uses the local link information for the route discovery process.
