Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is expected to be deployed in various scenarios having complex node mobility and connectivity dynamics in the future. Optimal broadcasting in mobile Ad-hoc networking is crucial for providing control and routing information for multicast and point to point communication algorithms. This paper presents an overview on the state of the art of broadcasting techniques in mobile Ad-hoc networks, compare their performance and make recommendations to improve the efficiency performance of broadcasting techniques. In this paper, the authors have introduced the four different types of broadcasting protocols, describe a clear concept of these protocols because they are going to work with these protocols.
