The Effect of the Number of Mobile Nodes on Varying Speeds of Manets
Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) are dynamic networks populated by mobile devices, or mobile nodes (MNs).The Mobile Nodes (MNs) are free to move anywhere and at any time. The population of the nodes may have some influence on the mobility rate of the MNs. This paper presents simulation results using MatLab software. The paper investigates the influence of mobile nodes' parameters such as number of nodes on the nodes speeds and nodes distribution in a given area. The results have indicated that the number of mobile nodes have impact on the speeds of the nodes in a location.
