A Mobile Ad-Hoc NETwork (MANET) is self-configuring network of mobile nodes connected by wireless links to form an arbitrary topology without the use of existing infrastructure. In such networks, nodes are able to move and synchronize with their neighbors. Due to mobility, connections in the network can change dynamically and nodes can be added and removed at any time. Many routing protocols for Mobile ad-hoc network have been proposed. Among them, DSDV is a representative table-driven protocol, while AODV and DSR are two representative on-demand protocols. In this paper, the authors have analyzed the performance of above cited three routing protocols by varying the number of connections. The performance matrix includes PDR (Packet Delivery Ratio), throughput, average end-to-end delay and packet dropped.
