Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a very dynamic and infrastructure-less ad hoc network. The actual network size depends on the application and the protocols developed for the routing for this kind of networks should be scalable. MANET is a resource limited network and therefore the developed routing algorithm for packet transmission should be power and bandwidth efficient. These kinds of dynamic networks should operate with minimal management overhead. The management functionality of the network increases with number of nodes and reduces the performance of the network.
