Behaviour of Adhoc Routing Protocols in Different Terrain Sizes
An Adhoc network is a collection of nodes forming a temporary network with out the use of any additional infrastructure and no centralized control. In recent years, a variety of new routing protocols targeted but little performance information on each protocol. The authors compare the performance of the three prominent routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks, Adhoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV), Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR). In this paper, they have made comparative study of the performance of the protocols for varying terrain sizes and pause time using Network Simulator-2. They have compared the performance of the protocols by taking three metrics, Packet Delivery Ratio, End-to-End Delay, Routing overhead using varying terrain sizes.
