"Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) routing protocols facilitate the creation of such networks without centralized infrastructure. Comprehensive analysis among Destination Sequence Distance Vector (DSDV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocols of ad-hoc networks has been carried out using Network Simulator (NS-2). Some important performance metrics of MANET have been taken under consideration such as no. of node vs. throughput, no. of node vs. packet drop, packet vs. propagation delay and throughput vs. time and it also investigates the best routing protocol with simulation environment."
