Performance Analysis of Various Protocols for Manets Through Simulation
Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile hosts that communicate with each other without fixed infrastructure and central administration. Routes between two hosts in a MANET may consist of hops through other hosts in the network. Host mobility can cause frequent unpredictable topology changes. Many protocols have been proposed for MANETs for efficient routing. The primary goal of routing protocols is to establish route with a minimum of overhead and bandwidth consumption. This paper analyses the performance of various protocols for efficiency (in terms of packet loss) and throughput (in terms of bps) with simulation results.
