MANET is a self-organizing and self-configurable network which has no infrastructure network. Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a set of number of nodes, which provide an environment over a shared wireless medium to communicate with each other without the presence of a predefined infrastructure or a centralized control. It establishes a temporary connection where nodes can join or leave the network at any time. Here the authors have considered three different routing protocols of MANET i.e. AODV, DSDV and DSR. AODV and DSR are reactive routing protocols i.e. capability to discover a path towards destination dynamically.
