Mobile Adhoc NETwork (MANET) routing protocols performance are perceptive to mobility and scalability of network, therefore, the objectives of paper is to describe mobility metrics into direct and derived mobility metrics and impact of these metrics on routing performance metrics in MANET. An effort for analyzing derived mobility metrics with direct mobility metrics are considered across Manhattan and Freeway mobility model in this paper. This paper extends an intuitive study to analyze impact of mobility models on two prominent reactive routing protocols i.e. Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) with fixed network size, varying node speed and identical traffic load.
