Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) includes a collection of wireless mobile hosts forming a temporary network without the aid of any stand-alone infrastructure or centralized administration. MANET is a self-organized and self-configurable network in which the mobile nodes move randomly. In MANETs appropriate routing algorithm is necessary to find special routes between source and destination. The main goal of any ad-hoc network routing protocol is to meet the challenges from the dynamically changing topology and establish an efficient route between any two nodes with minimum routing overhead and bandwidth consumption.
