Performance Analysis of Reactive Routing Protocols in Chain Mobility Models
Mobility models are the foundation of the simulation study of various protocols in mobile adhoc networks. The comparative performance of dynamic source routing and adhoc on-demand distance vector routing protocols using the two chain mobility models against performance parameters like throughput, packet delivery fraction, end to end delay is presented in this paper. The paper is oriented towards deployment of sparse ad-hoc networks by suitably selecting the number of nodes. With the help of NS-2 simulator performance of reactive routing protocols in chain mobility models is analyzed and hence comparative study is put forward.
