Simulation and Performance Analysis of DSDV, OLSR, DSR and ZRP Routing Protocols in Manets
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. These nodes change position frequently. The main classes of routing protocols are Proactive, Reactive and Hybrid. Ad hoc wireless networks are characterized by multi-hop wireless connectivity, infrastructure less environment and frequently changing topology.
