Jitter plays a very important role in implementation of Packet Telephony. It is a measure of packet ordering and mutual delay(s). In mobile ad-hoc network routing is done in decentralised manner with each node playing an equally important role in it. Any node with malicious intention has lot of scope to disrupt overall network performance with respect to various quality-of-service parameters including jitter. In this paper authors have tried to evaluate the amount of adverse effect malicious nodes, in mobile ad-hoc network carrying packet telephony could made on jitter.
