A Simplified Approach to Analyze Routing Protocols in Dynamic MANET Environment
The fundamental characteristic which differentiates MANETs from other wireless or wired network is mobility and node density. Mobile wireless Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) is a network without infrastructure, where every node functions as transmitter, router and data sink. Therefore, MANET routing protocols are designed to adaptively cater for dynamic changes in topology while maximizing throughput and packet delivery ratio, and minimizing delay, aggregate good put, average jitter and minimum packet loss. In this paper, the MANET is implemented by using Ad-hoc On-Demand Vector (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and DYnamic MANET On-demand (DYMO), Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) and Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) and simulated on QualNet5.0 simulator.
