Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET's) have become increasingly popular in infrastructure-less mobile wireless communication system. Nodes of these kinds of networks function as a router which discovers and maintains the route to the other nodes in the networks. Route discovery and packet forwarding operations need an efficient routing protocol. Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing protocol (AODV) and Destination Sequenced Distance Vector routing protocol (DSDV) are counted as widely used routing protocols in MANET. To this end, in this paper, the authors compare and evaluate the functionality of AODV and DSDV routing protocols.
