Performance Comparison of Two On-Demands Routing Protocols for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks
Mobile Ad-hoc networks are the collection of mobile nodes connected by a wireless link, where each node acts as a router. Ad-hoc networks are characterized by a lack of infrastructure, and by a random and quickly changing network topology: thus, the need for a robust dynamic routing protocol that can accommodate such an environment. In addition to this routing protocols face many challenges like short battery backup, limited processing capability. Two protocols AODV and DSR have compared in terms of number of routes selected, number of hop counts, number of RREQ packets and number of RREP packets.
