Performance Measurement of Various Routing Protocols in Ad-Hoc Network
Source: Curtin University of Technology
An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. A number of routing protocols like Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector (DSDV), Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Temporally Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA) have been implemented. In this paper, a comprehensive attempt has been made to compare the performance of two prominent on-demand reactive routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks: DSR and AODV, along with the traditional proactive DSDV protocol.
