A MANET is an interconnection of mobile devices by wireless links, which forms a dynamic topology. Routing protocols play a vital role in transmission of data across the network. The two major classifications of routing protocols are unipath and multipath. In this paper, the authors have evaluated the performance of a widely used on-demand unipath routing protocol called AODV and multipath routing protocol AOMDV and MDART. These protocols have been selected due to its edge over other protocols in various aspects, such as reducing delay, routing load etc. The evaluation of all the protocols is carried out in terms of different scenarios using NS2.
