Performance Analysis of Three Routing Protocols for Varying MANET Size
An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes, frequently forming a network topology without the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. The authors compare the performance of the three prominent routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks, Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV), Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) and Temporally Ordered Routing Protocols (TORA). They have chosen four performance metrics, such as Average Delay, Packet Delivery Fraction, Routing Load and Varying MANET Size, simulation for the popular routing protocols AODV, DSDV and TORA. The simulations are carried out on NS-2.
