Simulation Based Performance Evaluation and Comparison of Reactive, Proactive and Hybrid Routing Protocols Based on Random Waypoint Mobility Model
Ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the aid of any established infrastructure or centralized administration. Routing protocols in mobile ad hoc network helps node to send and receive packets. In this paper the focus is to study Reactive (AODV), Pro active (OLSR), and Hybrid (ZRP) protocols based on random waypoint mobility model. In this paper the authors evaluate performance of three types of routing protocols (AODV, OLSR, and ZRP) based on packet delivery ration, average end to end to end delay, and packet delivery ratio. In this paper they will analyze and compare the performance of protocols using Qualnet 4.5 from scalable network.
