Comparison and Performance Analysis of Reactive Type DSR, AODV and Proactive Type DSDV Routing Protocol for Wireless Mobile Ad-Hoc Network, Using NS-2 Simulator
Routing in MANET is a critical task due to highly dynamic environment. A routing protocol is needed whenever a packet needs to be transmitted to destination via number of nodes and numerous routing protocols have been proposed for ad-hoc network. In this paper, the authors try to judge the impact of both reactive as well proactive type protocols by increasing the density of nodes in the network, keeping source node fixed and move the destination node and lastly, keeping the destination node fixed and move source node. In all the three cases, the performance of the routing protocol have been analyzed to improve and select efficient routing protocol for network setup and its designing for practical scenario.
