Wireless networks can be mainly categorized as, infrastructure wireless networks and infrastructure-less wireless networks. MANET (Mobile Ad hoc NETwork) is a type of infrastructure-less wireless network. It is a collection of nodes that dynamically connected together to form a network without using any fixed infrastructure. As it is infrastructure less network, the information or data packets are send between the nodes with the help of radio signals and each node act as routers. Providing efficient networking services in MANETs is very challenging due to mobility and unpredictable radio channel: a significant number of packets can be corrupted or lost. To increase reliability, various measures have been proposed.
