The flattening towards wireless network from wired network offers has become a worldwide trend in the past few decades. The versatility as well as scalability brought by wireless network created it possible in countless applications. Involving all of the contemporary wireless networks, mobile ad hoc network is one of the most essential and unique applications. On the contrary to ordinary network architecture, MANET does not need a fixed network infrastructure; every single node works as both a sender and a receiver. Nodes communicate directly with each other when they are both within the same communication range. Otherwise, they depend on their neighbors to exchange messages.
