Performance Analysis of Various Routing Protocols in Ad-Hoc Network-A Survey
Ad hoc networks are special networks that do not require an infrastructure. Nodes of such networks are usually mobile and wireless. Wireless nodes use a shared medium for communication, so they are able to communicate with many nodes directly provided they are within communication range of those nodes. An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the use of any existing network infrastructure. A number of routing protocols like Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector (DSDV), Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Temporally Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA) have been implemented.
