A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is form over wireless media by the various mobile nodes. In other word, the authors can say if various mobile nodes from a network without any infrastructure, such kind of network is known as Mobile Ad-hoc Network. In MANET communication between two mobile devices are performed by routing protocol. In MANET each mobile node can directly communicate with other mobile node if both mobile nodes are within transmission range. Otherwise the nodes present in between have to forward the packets for them on network. In such condition each mobile node acts as a router to forward the packets for others. Forwarding packet in MANET with limited resources (like bandwidth constraints, hidden terminal and limited battery power) is a very challenging task.
