Routing protocols play crucial role in determining performance parameters such as packet delivery fraction, end to end (end 2 end) delay, packet loss etc. of any ad hoc communication network. In this paper the performance of DSDV protocol in sensor network of randomly distributed static nodes with mobile source and sink nodes is investigated for source and sink velocities 0,10,20,40 and 60 m/sec. and node densities 20-100 nodes/km2 by ns-2 simulator. It is observed that the average simulation end to end delay in static source and sink nodes scenario (i.e. velocity v=0) is generally higher than that in mobile source-sink cases for all node densities except at 20 nodes/km2.
