Performance Comparison Study of AODV, OLSR and TORA Routing Protocols for MANETS
Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are the special type of wireless network, where mobile nodes are connected through wireless interfaces forming a temporary network. They don't need fixed infrastructure. Due to higher mobility in nodes and dynamic infrastructure of MANETS, Routing is important issue in ad hoc networks. There are many routing protocol in MANETS like AODV, TORA, DSDV, OLSR, DSR etc. MANETS is classified in three routing protocols. This research paper make a comparison of these routing protocol based on the performance metrics like packet delivery fraction, end-to-end delay and throughput. Simulation is used to compare the performance of AODV, OLSR and TORA.
