A Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any centralized access point or administration. MANET protocols have to face high challenges due to dynamically changing topologies, low transmission power and asymmetric links of network. MANET is a spontaneous network. It is useful when dealing with wireless devices in which some of the devices are part of network only for duration of a communication session. An attempt has been made to compare the performance of three protocols AODV, LEACH, TORA. AODV stands for ad-hoc on demand distance vector.
