Performance Evaluation of AODV for Mobile Ad Hoc Network With Varying Network Size
An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a network topology without the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. Routing is the task of directing data packets from a source node to a given destination. The main method for evaluating the performance of MANETs is simulation. The Ad Hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol performs better than the table-driven protocol. This paper is subjected to the on demand routing protocol AODV and evaluated its performance. The authors investigated the performance metrics namely Packet Delivery Fraction (PDF) and Average end-to-end delay by varying network size through simulation using NS-2 network simulator.
