Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) or simply ad hoc network, comprises of nodes that freely and dynamically self - organize into arbitrary and temporary network topology without any infrastructure support. So a routing procedure is always needed to find a path to forward the packets appropriately between the source and the destination. In MANETs, there are different types of routing protocols each of them is applied according to the network circumstances. Mainly routing protocols are classified as proactive, reactive and hybrid.
