Performance Comparison of Wireless Mobile AD-HOC Networks
There are new challenges for routing protocols in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) since traditional routing protocols may not be suitable for MANETs. As such, some assumptions used by these protocols are not valid in MANETs or some protocols cannot efficiently handle topology changes. The Efficient routing protocols can provide significant benefits to mobile ad-hoc networks, in terms of both performance and reliability. The most popular routing protocols are Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV), Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector routing protocol (DSDV), Dynamic Source Routing protocol (DSR), and Optimum Link State Routing (OLSR). Despite the popularity of those protocols, research efforts have not focused much in evaluating their performance when applied to Variable Bit Rate (VBR).
