Comparison of RIP, EIGRP, OSPF, IGRP Routing Protocols in Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) by using OPNET Simulator tool - A Practical Approach
In ad hoc network group communication is more important, in which routing protocols play a vital role for data transmission. With/without using central server or access point, the wireless network form a temporary network with collection of wireless nodes in which, each node changes randomly at different times. In order to establish data transmission between nodes, multiple hops are needed because of limited range i.e. transmission rate. In this paper, the authors have analyzed and simulated a proposed Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) using different routing protocols.
