Review: Performance Evolution of Different Routing Protocols in MANET
Ad-hoc networks are basically self organizing and self configuring multi-hop mobile wireless network in which the information packets are transmitted in the manner as that in Massage Switching (store and forward) from a Transmitter to an arbitrary Receiver via intermediate Stations (nodes). A number of routing protocols like Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV) and Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector (DSDV) have been implemented. Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. Each node operates not only as an end system, but also as a router to forward packets. The nodes are free to move about and organize themselves into a network.
