Performance Tradeoffs Among the Reactive, Proactive and Hybrid Protocols in MANET and WSN

A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork is a self organizing network comprising wireless mobile nodes that moves around arbitrarily and can able to communicate among themselves using wireless radios, without the aid of any pre-existing infrastructure. Each participating mobile node can act as a sender, receiver and even as a router at the same time and able to build, operate and maintain these networks, each node function as a router. This paper presents an extensive QUALNET simulation based comparisons of routing protocols AODV (Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector), ZRP (Zone Routing Protocols) and OLSR (Optimized Link State Routing) on the basis of performance metrics such as End to End Delay, throughput and energy consumption in transmitting and receiving mode in two different scenarios MANET and WSN.
