The mobile ad hoc network is highly dynamic and the nodes are mobile. It is a challenge to develop routing protocol that can meet different application needs and optimize routing paths according to the topology change in mobile ad hoc networks. Basing their forwarding decisions only on the local topology, geographic routing protocols have drawn a lot of attentions in recent years. Providing reliable broadcasting is a challenging task. This paper analyses about various routing protocols available for routing packets between mobile nodes in mobile ad hoc network.
